School Meals

School Meals

School meals are provided by Chartwells and are freshly made each day.


Dinner money is payable via our online system Parent Pay. The price of a school meal is £2.90 per day.


School meals are eaten in the school hall or studio. Children with packed lunches also eat outside when the weather is fine. Packed lunches must be self-sufficient, i.e. children will eat from their packed lunch boxes. Water is provided for drinking for all children.

Please be aware that as some children in school have nut allergies, nut products are not permitted in children's lunch boxes (peanut butter sandwiches, raisin and nut mix, etc.)


Free School Meals and Universal Free School Meals

North Somerset have replaced the old free school meal paper application forms with an online checker.  Parents can apply online and will get an instant decision on eligibility. Please note that the entitlement is per child, not per family.


Due to the roll out of Universal Credit, any child entitled to free school meals will keep their entitlement until the end of the school stage they are in (either primary, secondary or sixth form). This means you should not need to reapply until your child changes from primary school to secondary school, or secondary school to sixth form. Please reapply in the summer holidays before the change.  If your child moves school in this time, please email so that their records can be updated.


Any parent/carer with a child not currently entitled to free school meals can apply online at by registering with the Citizen's Portal. For any queries, please email


Even if your child is receiving universal free school meals because they are in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, please apply for free school meals if you think your child may be entitled to it as the school receives extra funding for this and free milk will be provided each day for the child - see leaflets below for more details:
