School Meals

School meals are available to pupils at a cost of £1.25 per day or at no cost to those in receipt of a current free meal entitlement.

To enable the service to be efficiently planned the School requires advance notice of your child’s requirements. (Half a terms notice is required to change arrangements).  Please request a form from the school office to change your child’s meal requirement (this must be signed and given into the school office).

It is your responsibility to inform the school office if you would like to change your child’s meal requirements. Meals will continue to be booked and charged for.

We are aware that there may be some confusion as to why you need to claim Free School Meals (FSM) for your child/ children when they are in reception, year 1 or year 2 due to the Universal Free School Meals.

However, as a school the benefit is that for every pupil registered as eligible for FSM the school will receive additional funding called Pupil Premium which is used to help raise achievement levels. Your child’s school will receive this additional amount for six years.

Please make your claim to help your child and your child’s school. To see if you qualify please telephone Bolton Council on 01204 331590 or you can visit the council website by clicking below
