Free School Meals

If you are claiming Income Support, Jobseekers Allowance or Child Tax Credit, your child may be eligible for free school meals. This will also entitle them to Pupil Premium an additional funding given to schools to give extra support to these pupils. It can entitle you to discounts on uniform and trips. So even if your child is in Reception, Years 1 & 2 and already receiving a universal free hot dinner it is still important to register.

Registering is really quick and easy, you can apply on-line at 

North Northants Free School Meal



Packed Lunches

Our school has been awarded the Northamptonshire Healthy Schools Award.  As a result, there is an expectation that the contents of your child’s lunch box will be as healthy as possible. 

We often talk to the children about healthy options and the reasons why it is important to eat healthily.  We would like your support to make this a reality at lunchtime.  Please do not put fizzy drinks or sweets in your child’s lunchbox as these are not acceptable.

A copy of our Healthy Eating policy can be found below.
