School Meals:

  • Our school meals are provided by Leeds Catering
  • Our meals are produced freshly each day in our school kitchen, following nutritionally balanced recipes and using:
    • Fresh meat and poultry sourced from the region
    • Fruit and vegetables sourced regionally where possible using local suppliers
    • Products free from additives associated with health problems in young children

Free School Meals:

Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:

  • 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 - for applications after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)

Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.

Your child may also get free school meals if you get any of these benefits and your child is both:

  • younger than the compulsory age for starting school
  • in full-time education

Infant free school meals in England

Your child will be able to get free school meals if they’re in a government-funded school and in:

  • reception class
  • year 1
  • year 2

Tell your local authority if you also get any of the qualifying benefits. Your child’s school can get extra funding if you do.
