School Meals

From January 2023, our new hot school meals provider is Chartwells. Information on how to book a hot meal will be available on here soon.



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 (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross 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 - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)

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.
