North Yorkshire School Meals

Cost of School Dinners will be £2.71 per meal from 3rd September 2019.



As well as being convenient, and giving your child the benefit of a hot meal in the middle of the day, school dinners represent great value for money. Things have moved on since we were at school: food standards are high and the menu is balanced over the week to ensure that all food groups and nutrients are well represented. The North Yorkshire Food Policy gives more detail.


Our school cook, Harriet, is always pleased to discuss individual dietary needs, and will work with you to make sure that your child gets the meal that is right for them.

Last year, we decided to look at the menus that are provided by the County Catering service to make sure that we are providing food that children enjoy and will eat. The School Council carried out a survey of preferences for children in all year groups, and met with one of our governors to talk about how the menu could be improved. The result of this is the production of a brand-new two-week rolling menu which is based on the children’s top choices of meals while remaining nutritionally balanced across the week. We review this half termly, and will be inviting input from children and parents. 

Free School Meals

Free school meals are available to children whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:

  • income support
  • income-based job seeker's allowance
  • income-related employment and support allowance
  • child tax credit with an income of less than £16,190 and not in receipt of working tax credit
  • support under part VI of the immigration and asylum act 1999
  • guarantee element of state pension credit.

Where parents are entitled to working tax credit during a four week "run on" period immediately after their employment has ceased, or after they have started to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school meals.

Children who receive income support or income based jobseeker's allowance in their own right are also entitled to free school meals. 

Should you meet the above criteria, you can apply by using the application form in the useful downloads section.

Applications are usually processed the same day. If your child is entitled to free school meals you will receive a letter confirming the date when the meals will start. The school is also notified that your child is entitled to free school meals. In the meantime, you should continue to pay for free school meals until confirmation comes through. Schools may be able to arrange a reimbursement of any monies paid whilst your entitlement is being confirmed.

If you are not entitled to free school meals you will be notified in writing.
