Free School Meals & Universal Free School Meals
If you think you could qualify for free school meals, you will need to make a direct application using the government website www.kent.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals Your eligibility will be checked and your application processed straight away and you will be informed of the decision. If your application is successful, the school will be notified by email and your child will start receiving their free school meal.
Universal free school meals are for children in years Reception to year 2. This entitles your child to a free meal whilst in school until they finish in year 2. You should still apply online to see if your child would be eligible to receive school meals.
Please see the government website for more information; https://www.kent.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals
All our meals are prepared fresh on-site each day by our Kitchen Team, led by Mark Wade. As well as the hot meal choices, children also have the choice of the salad bar. The cost of school meals are £2.20 daily, £11.00 weekly, which are payable in advance using your online SIMS Pay account. Children in classes R to year 2 receive the universal free school meal. Children in years 3 to 6 have to pay for meals unless you qualify for free school meals.
