School Dinners

Current Dinner Menu
Balanced, healthy hot meals are served in our dining hall, these meals are prepared and cooked in our own on-site kitchen. The children are offered a varied menu and order their dinner at the beginning of the school day.  You can also pre-order at home. This ensures that children receive the meals of their choice every day. School dinners are payable through Blue Runner and should be paid in advance.
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children receive a school meal free of charge as part of the Universal Infant Free School Meal Initiative.
Packed Lunches
Please see our Healthy Lifestyles and Lunch Box Policy for more information.
Facilities are also provided for children who bring a packed lunch. 
We have a number of children in school who are nut intolerant. We therefore cannot allow any type of nuts in a child’s lunchbox. This includes peanut butter, loose nuts and chocolate or breakfast bars which contain nuts.

Drinking water is available at all time. 

Children are free to try school meals at anytime.
Snacks at School
Please see our Healthy Lifestyles and Lunch Box Policy for more information.

Children in Nursery up to Year 2 are supplied with a free healthy snack at breaktime (fruit or vegetables).

In Key Stage 2, parents may wish to supply their child with fresh fruit/vegetables for breaktime.

Please ensure you inform us of any dietary requirements or allergies your child may have.

Universal Infant Free School Meals

All children attending a state funded infant school in reception class, year 1 or year 2 are automatically entitled to a free school meal regardless of income.

There is no need for you to complete an application form for children in reception class, year 1 or year 2 unless you receive a qualifying benefit.

If you receive a qualifying benefit (listed below) we would urge you to make a formal application as this will allow your child’s school to claim additional funding (pupil premium).

Moving into year 3

Once your child moves into year 3 they will automatically lose their entitlement to UIFSM. If you want your child to continue getting a school meal they will either have to pay or claim for an income-related free school meal.

Pupil Premium

Schools will receive additional funding from the government for each child registered for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.

Schools can choose how to spend their pupil premium money. You can speak to your child’s school direct to find out how they use this funding. Some schools also offer incentives to encourage parents of eligible children to apply.

Income-Related Free School Meals

Provided your child is attending a state funded school or academy full-time in the Wakefield District they will qualify for income-related free school meals if you receive:-

  • Income Support
  • Income based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income related Employment Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit - as long as you have a yearly household income of less than £16,190 (as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs) and you do not get Working Tax Credit
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working tax Credit)
  • Universal Credit
