Menu

School Lunches

Our lunches are provided by caterers Edwards and Ward who provide a varied menu which offers daily meat, vegetarian and jacket potato (with a choice of toppings) options. A variety of delicious puddings are also provided plus a selection of fresh fruit and yogurts. Having a school meal is a great way for a child to try new foods and to have some of their favourites.

Allergies, Intolerances, Religious Dietary Requirements

If your child has an allergy or intolerance to certain foods or must avoid certain foods for religious reasons, please ensure that you complete the relevant section on the Data Collection Forms as well as the form for Edwards and Ward - our caterers.

Free School Meals

The government offers free school meals to families in receipt of certain benefits. Signing up for free school meals increases the funding that we receive as a school meaning that we have additional funds to spend on supporting our children. Please can we ask for your support by completing the online application to aid us as a school.  Anyone in any year group can apply. Even if you are unsure if you are entitled, please apply online to Swindon Borough Council Free School Meals at:

If you or your child receive any of the benefits listed below, you should apply for free school meals:

  • Income support
  • Income-based Job Seekers 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 are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and your household annual income is less than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for the four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
  • Universal Credit (provided your household annual income is less than £7,400 after tax and not including any benefits you get)

  

Universal Infant Free School Meals and How to Book a Meal
