School Meal Arrangements
We are a nut-free Federation, as we have children and staff with severe nut allergies (this includes any products which may contain nuts). Thank you for your co-operation
Children may choose to have a school dinner or bring a packed lunch. The catering facilities are excellent and the cooked meals are of a very high standard, with a good healthy choice. Children may opt for a mixture of school meals and packed lunches during the week and order these on a daily basis during registration.
Parents of children in Reception, Y1 & Y2 - did you know your child can eat a school meal every day completely free of charge?
The Government Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) scheme provides funding for all government funded schools to offer free school meals to pupils in reception, year 1, and year 2.
There is nothing you need to do to qualify - your child just needs to order a meal during registration
If you have older children or a child in nursery, they may still qualify for a free meal - please see below:

Our School Caterer:
Mellors provide an excellent range of hot meals - see our three week rolling menus below. At KS2, dinner money must be paid in advance on the first school day in each week. The charge is currently £2.40 per meal though this is subject to change. ParentPay, is our preferred method of payment for school lunches, trips and after school clubs. ParentPay is an online payment system that offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available.
Application forms for free school meals can be obtained from the Forms page of this website and should be returned to the Harrogate Area Education Office.
We understand that some children will bring a packed lunch from home. Please can we ask that consideration be given to the contents and that children are encouraged to make healthy choices, as what children eat at lunchtime has a direct impact on how well they focus and learn in afternoon lessons.

If your child has any food allergies, please complete our Allergens Parent Pack and return to the school office.
