School Meals


The school has an on-site kitchen that provides a range of excellent meals including vegetarian options and can cater for children with specific dietary requirements.  If your child requires a special diet please contact the school office as soon as possible.

For children in Nursery, the cost of a school meal is currently £1.80 per day.

For children in years 3 to 6 (Key Stage 2), the cost of a school meal is currently £2.20 per day.

From September 2014, free school meals will be available to all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, regardless of family income. Registration forms for infant free school meals are available here or from the school office. You must register your child to claim the free school meals.

Payment is made at the beginning of each week on Monday morning by cash or cheque made payable to ‘Priory C of E Primary School’. Payment for the whole term is also possible and is encouraged for ease of administration.

Free school meals are available for those children in Nursery and Key Stage 2 whose parents are in receipt of one of the following:

  • Income Support or
  • Income-based Job Seekers Allowance
  • The guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (providing you do not receive Working Tax Credit) and have an annual income of £16,190 or less.
  • Supported by NASS as an asylum seeker
  • Income related Employment Support Allowance.

Claim forms for free school meals are available here or at the school office. You can contact the Free School Meals Team at the Local Authority on 01782 236813 for further assistance.

Children are also able to bring a packed lunch. We request that pupils who bring sandwiches do not include carbonated drinks or sweets/chocolate as part of their meal and that parents support our ‘healthy eating’ agenda. Please send your child’s packed lunch in a plastic container/box labelled with the child’s name and class. Please do not include any drinks in glass bottles or cans.

Requests for changes between school meals and sandwiches can be made at the beginning of each week.


Children are not allowed to bring sweet biscuits, chocolate bars, crisps etc for a break-time snack, but may bring healthy snacks (e.g. fruit).

Key Stage 1 and Foundation Stage children receive a free piece of fruit each day.  Children under 5 also receive free milk.

Key Stage 2 children can buy healthy snacks from the school kitchen at morning break
