Free School Meals
If your child is in Reception, Y1 & Y2 and you believe that you would have been eligible for Free school Meals, without the government initiative, please still do apply. Children eligible for Free school meals are also eligible for 'Pupil Premium' money which can be used by us to benefit your child whilst they are with us.

If your child is in Y3, 4, 5 or 6, and believe that your child is eligible for Free school meals, please complete this
Swindon Borough form. Your child will also be eligible for 'Pupil Premium' money.


Packed Lunches
Children are not forced to eat their packed lunch, but we do encourage them to consume a reasonable amount.

Please do not send your child to school with any of the following:
  • Hot liquid in thermos flasks.
  • Pot meals requiring hot water.
  • Glass containers.
  • Fizzy drinks.
  • Chocolate and/or confectionery.
Please may we request that no nuts or peanuts are brought to school as we have children attending with severe nut/peanut allergies.

Children may bring in a snack and/or drink to consume during morning break.
Please provide fruit or a cereal bar. We regret that we are unable to accept yogurts at play-time, although these are fine for lunch. Classes 1 & 2 are offered a piece of fruit daily.
