School Menu

Children in Foundation, Year 1 and 2 classes will all be offered a free hot school meal each day in addition to daily fruit.  Children in other Year Groups will be able to purchase a meal from our well-balanced menu or to bring a packed lunch to school.

Universal Infant Free School Meals -  The Government introduced Universal Infant Free School Meal's in September 2014 for Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children which automatically entitles them to a free school meal.  You do not need to apply for this when your child starts school.

Key Stage 2 School Meals - Children can choose to pay for a school meal or bring in their own packed lunch. If you would like your child to have a school meal, please pay online via ParentPay at

Income Related Free School Meals - If you think your child might be entitled to free school meals, due to your family circumstance then please apply online via the 'Citizen Portal' which is the quickest and easiest way and will result in you getting an instant decision.  Alternatively, call the Education Helpline on 0345 155 1019.  Further information can also be obtained on the Devon County Council website at:  If you qualify not only do you get free school meals but it also attracts additional extra funding 'Pupil Premium' to support your child’s education.  To get this extra funding you must still apply even if your child chooses not to have the free school meal as they prefer a packed lunch or is already receiving universal free school meals.
