Reception – Year 2

From September 2014 the government are funding schools in England to provide every child in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 with a hot, nutritious meal at lunch time. The aim is to improve academic attainment and save families money – over the course of a year the average family spends £437 on school lunches per child.

We hope that all parents with children in these year groups will take up this benefit of free school meals for their children.

Year 3 – Year 6

The price of a school meal for KS2 pupils will be £2.30 per day, £11.50 per week.  THIS IS PAYABLE IN ADVANCE.

Payments can be made weekly, half termly or termly via ParentMail2. From 1st September 2014 we aim to process all payments electronically using ParentMail’s +Pay service.

Payment can only be made for a minimum of 5 days and must be made at least two days before the first meal is required.

If you are currently in receipt of Income Support, you could be entitled to free school meals.  Application forms can be obtained either from Shire Hall, Bury St Edmunds, or School Reception. Please bear in mind that the forms are periodically updated.

Meals must be paid for in advance as we cannot bear this cost on your behalf. Since we have noticed an increase in late payments parents will receive a telephone call if their child requests a meal with no payment in credit and they will be expected to either bring in a packed lunch or the money that day.
