School dinners are provided free of charge for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. For children from Year 3 upwards, the charge is presently £11 per week payable in advance. Meals are ordered in advance for a four week period. Cheques should be made payable to Lancashire County Council and placed in a sealed envelope with your child’s name and class written on the front. Parents in receipt of Income Support, Income Based Job Seekers Allowance or receive Child Tax Credit (only) and have an annual income of below the relevant figure are entitled to free meals. Free meals are re-newed automatically during the summer holiday but any change is circumstance/name or address change/ etc must be reported to the education office in Preston on 01772 531809 for further information and an application form. Children who wish to bring their own packed lunches can do so.
They must bring the lunch in a small named lunchbox or bag which is stored until dinnertime. We encourage children to bring and eat healthy lunches. Children receiving free meals under the Government initiative but are on the appropriate benefits should still apply for Free School Meals.
