Hot Lunches at Charlton Mackrell School

All children in Reception and Key Stage 1 (years 1 and 2) are eligible for a Free School Meal every day. This will be paid for by the Government and is worth £437 a year for every child. This is not based on household income or whether you receive any benefits - every child can have a free lunch, saving you time and money. No more making packed lunches, now your children can eat a hot lunch every day.

We are also giving all our older pupils the opportunity to buy a hot lunch at £2.60 per day. This can be arranged for whichever days of the week you wish, but we do ask you to pay in advance.

Packed Lunches - parents can, of course, pack a lunch for their children. We encourage healthy eating so please do not send in your child with a fizzy drink - water is always available.  Chocolate biscuits (eg Club/Penguin) are acceptable, but please do not include sweets or chocolates. 

Key Stage 1 (Reception - Year 2)

To register your KS1 child for free school meals, please fill in both application form found under Forms for Parents and return to the School Office with your menu choices.

Key Stage 2 (Year 3 - Year 6)

If you would like to order hot lunches for your KS2 child, you will need to fill in the menu and order form (click on link at the top) and return it with your cash payment (or BACS payment details) to the School Office.

If you think your KS2 child may be eligible for for Free School Meals, you can apply online for Free School Meals here or, alternatively, ask in the School Office for more information.
