School Meals

School meal arrangements

All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 may have a Government funded universal infant free school meal. School lunches are £12.00 per week for Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. If you choose to send a packed lunch, parents are requested to contact the school to notify any change in their child’s meal pattern before the start of each half term. Children MUST remain with the chosen arrangement for the whole of the half term and cannot alternate between two different meal patterns. If special circumstances arise and your child needs to change their meal arrangements, please contact the school office

Packed lunches

If your child has a packed lunch, please send it in with your child in a container with a lid that is easily opened.  As we cannot take responsibility for damaged lunches, we ask you to send unbreakable containers for liquids.  We ask that children do not bring sweets as part of their lunch.  The school promotes healthy eating and has a no sweets policy. Please do not bring packed lunches during the morning and ask the office staff to deliver them.

Free school Meal eligibility

All families from Nursery to Year 6 can check their free school meals eligibility. We especially encourage Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 families to apply too because for every Free School Meal pupil, Breckon Hill Primary School receives additional funding called the Pupil Premium. Please help us to ensure we can access this funding for your child.
