The school is very lucky to have its own kitchen where meals are prepared daily. There are choices of main course and dessert and the children are provided with a drink of water. Particular dietary requirements of any child can be met. We would recommend a school dinner as an economical way of providing your child with a healthy, hot meal during their school day.
School meals are currently free for children in Reception and Key Stage 1 (Years 1 & 2). From January 2015, a school meal for children in Years 3 to 6 cost £1.65 per day (£8.25 per week). Parents & carers are encouraged to use our secure online ParentPay system to pay for school meals (log in details can be obtained from school), however you can also pay by cheque (payable to BMDC School Meals) or cash. You can pay weekly, half-termly, termly or annually, in advance. If a child has a school dinner and payment has been made for a week during which an absence occurs, a credit for any missed dinners will be recorded on the school meals' register.
If a child wishes to change from school dinners to packed lunches (or the other way round), they may do so on a weekly basis. Children on packed lunches should have a proper lunch container, which is clearly marked with their name. Hot drinks and glass bottles are not permitted.

Do you qualify for free school meals?
Even if your child prefers to have a packed lunch or is in KS1 and already automatically receives free meals, you can claim and receive clothing vouchers to help you buy your child's school uniform. Registering for Free School Meals also means your school gets extra money from the government, known as the Pupil Premium.
Free School Meals and School Clothing Allowance are available to children of parents/guardians who live in the Bradford area, attend a council nursery or school full time and get one of the following:
- Income Support
- Universal Credit
- Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
- Pension Credit (Guarantee Credit only)
- Support from NASS (National Asylum Seeker's Support)
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
You can apply online for Free School Meals via the Bradford Council website.
