School Meals

We are delighted to provide nutritionally balanced meals for all of our pupils


School meals


All the meals we provide are nutritionally balanced and meet stringent government guidelines.  Information about the menu and details of all allergens along with the process for ordering meals are available on our provider's website. Vegetarian options are provided and most special dietary requirements can be catered for.


The first step is to register your child with our school meal provider (Chartwells). Once this is done, meals can be ordered. If a special diet is required, for example because of an allergen or medical condition, then the providers will be in touch with the parent once registration is complete – this process is handled directly by the provider and not the school.


Please follow this link here to order a meal for your child 



Managing Allergies in School 


Our school manages allergies in accordance with our First Aid and Medical Conditions, Managing Medication and Allergy Policy which can be found on our policy pages here.


Our school is ‘Allergy Aware’; this means that school staff have an awareness of allergies and the 14 key allergens; they understand how to deal with an anaphylactic episode and encourage pupils, visitors and parents to be allergy aware and ensure that staff know how to manage a safe environment.




If you are receiving any of the following, your child could be entitled to  free school meals:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (but no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit - with an annual income of no more than £7400 (after tax and deductions)


We urge all parents who are eligible for free school meals to apply for them. School funding is partly based on numbers of children registered for free school meals, so please consider applying, even if you still prefer to send your own packed lunch.   


To apply for free school meal please either contact BCP Council here:  or request a form from the school office.
