Healthy, hot meals are served daily
Pupils in Reception, Y1 and Y2 are eligible for Universal Free School meals. Payment for school meals is collected via our online payment system, School Money. If you require a password, please contact the school office.
Parents who feel that they may be eligible for free meals through the Pupil Premium Scheme are actively encouraged to contact the school secretary for information. All enquiries are dealt with in the strictest confidence.

Your child may bring their own packed lunch
Alternatively, your child may bring their own packed lunch in a plastic container. For those who do bring a packed lunch, water is provided, but you may wish to include a non-fizzy cold drink for your child in a suitable bottle.
We request that parents provide healthy lunch boxes for children and do not send sweets or chocolate bars.
Dove Bank is a nut free zone; please do not send peanut butter sandwiches or any other nut products into school.
As many children bring similar boxes, please ensure that your child’s full name is displayed on the outside of their lunch container.
Snacks and Sweets
Children may bring a healthy, mid-morning snack (such as a piece of fruit or a cereal bar).
If children wish to celebrate a birthday or other event with their class mates, children may bring a cake or wrapped sweets to be shared among their classmates, although we would request that where possible, an alternative is sought e.g. stickers.
Food items such as the above must be taken home rather than eaten at school so that parents can give consent.
Drinking water is provided throughout the day in class, as well as at lunch time.

All schools receive additional ‘Pupil Premium’ funding from the government for pupils who could potentially be classed as disadvantaged. As well as funding ‘free’ school meals, the money can be used to cover the cost of clubs, trips, uniform, specific resources etc. However, the funding is only allocated to the school if an application is made by a parent and approved.
