Bury School Catering Service provides us with a variety of healthy and nutritional meals each day. We offer a daily selection of freshly cooked main meals, salads and desserts including fresh fruit and yoghurt.
School meals are nutritionally balanced and provide up to 3 of the recommended 5 a day. They also provide the opportunity to sit down and enjoy their meal with others whilst developing social skills.
We offer halal and vegetarian options each day and are able to provide for most other special dietary requirements.
School meals cost £11.50 per week. This money should be sent into school on Monday morning with your child in a sealed envelope. Alternatively you can pay online on the Bury Council website. Click here for further details - Bury Pay For It
Are You Entitled To Free School Meals?
From September 2014 all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils have been entitled to receive a free meal at lunchtime.
If your child is in this age group but is also eligible for free school meals because you receive one of the qualifying benefits we still need you to apply for these as normal. This is because schools receive a 'pupil premium' payment (up to £1,300) for each eligible child which they can spend on resources which will benefit your child's education.
Free school meals are available if you or your partner are in receipt of either of -
income based job seekers allowance
income related employment support allowance
child tax credit providing you do not receive working tax credit and your annual income does not not exceed £16,190
guarantee element of state pension credit
support under part vi of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
