Our school lunches are provided by Sodexo, they provide a range of freshly cooked, delicious meals that will encourage your child to try something new as well as some school lunch classics.

The menu changes twice a year (once after the October break and again after the Easter break); there are new and exciting dishes on every menu. Each new term will start on week 1 of the menu. 

The school dinner menu has also been changed extensively to reduce the amount of fat and salt in the meals and to increase the range of fresh fruit and vegetables on offer.

School meals are currently £2.43 per day. These must be paid for in advance. The easiest way to do this is via the School Gateway app which can be downloaded from your app store or directly from School Gateway. Alternatively you can pay at the school office by cash or cheque.

Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with a free school lunch through the national universal free meals scheme.  

We actively encourage children and parents to have healthy choices in mind when preparing their own packed lunches each day. 

Please avoid fizzy drinks and chocolate bars, and pack some fruit each day. Always put your child’s name on their lunch pack and drink as they can get mixed up if boxes look the same.


Children up to and including Year 2 receive fresh fruit or vegetables every day at snack time free of charge. Children from Year 3 onward are asked to bring fruit or vegetables to school for snack time. 


We encourage children to drink water throughout the day. Children should bring a water bottle to school, their bottle can be refilled throughout the day. Please do not provide your child with fizzy drinks, juice etc. 

Free School Meals

Please help us! If you think you may be eligible for free school meals please make an application, even if your child prefers a packed lunch, or if they already receive a free meal in Reception or years 1 and 2 under the Universal Free Meals scheme. 

The government allocates school funding based on the number of children who receive free school meals.  Last year, a third of eligible families from our school did not apply, meaning the school did not receive tens of thousands of pounds which could have been used to fund an extra teacher, to reduce the cost of school activities and trips, for additional teaching assistants, providing additional support for children who have fallen behind, provide free breakfast club places… the list goes on. 

Children are eligible to receive free school meals if their parents are in receipt of any of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (as long as 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 four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
  • Universal Credit: if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get. This is also called the 'minimum income floor'.) If your child is eligible for free school meals they will eligible until they finish the phase of schooling (primary or secondary) they are in on 31 March 2025.

Please note, the criteria for entitlement is subject to change. You can view the latest criteria and apply online through Bristol City Council. 

You won’t need any documentation and the system tells you immediately whether or not you are eligible for free school meals.
