School Dinners & Info

All pupils at Headley Park can have daily School Dinner prepared by Eden Foodservice in our School Kitchen.

School Dinners are designed to provide delicious, healthy school meals, with balanced menus that offer pupils great choice. Eden Foodservice ensure that they meet the Department for Education guidance on school meals. Their Nutrition Team continually explore ways to improve the nutritional quality of the recipes, meet and exceed nutritional standards, and introduce new education initiatives.

The Dinner Menu includes a daily cooked main meal (with Halal alternative), vegetarian cooked option, salad bar or jacket potato.

Your child’s school dinner must be ordered first thing in the morning as the kitchen prepares the numbers required. Please look at the weekly menu so that you child is clear which option they want to eat. Each Friday afternoon the next week’s menu will be displayed here.

How much do School Dinners cost?

School Dinners are FREE for all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.

For other Children School Dinners costs £2.25 per day.

You may, however, be entitled to FREE School Dinners if you are receiving certain benefits and your income is below the current threshold (see details below). It is very simple to check to check your entitlement and apply, just click on the link below!

Please make every effort to pay for your child’s School Dinner in advance. We will let you know if you owe us money and are happy to discuss a payment arrangement if you are having difficulties so that your child can continue to benefit from a School Dinner.

Free school meals

Who can apply?

You may qualify for free school meals if you receive one of the following benefits.

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit.

How to apply

Bristol City Council administer the Free School Meals Scheme and have a simple online application form which will check your eligibility.

Don’t worry, if you need help applying just come into the School Office and we can help you. Please bring your National Insurance number with you.

Universal infant free school meals

All pupils in reception, year 1 and year 2 in state-funded schools are now entitled to free school meals.

It is important that all parents who receive one of the benefits listed above register for free school meals as this will enable our school to claim “pupil premium allocation”.

You can still claim Pupil Premium for your child, regardless of whether or not you want a free school meal.

 

If you register for Pupil Premium, our school will receive extra funding so we can spend it on providing the best learning opportunities possible for the children. It can sometimes mean you will get subsidies on school trips, you would get free breakfast club places and other support as required.

Packed Lunches

**DUE TO SEVERE NUT ALLERGIES PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE ANY NUTS, INCLUDING PEANUT BUTTER OR NUTELLA, IN YOUR CHILDS PACKED LUNCH**

We appreciate that not every child wants to eat a School Dinner and you may therefore decide to send you child to School with a packed lunch.

You will want to make your child’s packed lunch as healthy as possible and we suggest you follow the guidance below:

Our Primary School

Our children are fantastic, our staff are brilliant and we have a strong and active community of parents, friends and colleagues who all pull together to give our children the best possible education and experience of school. It is also great to be part of the Cathedral Schools Trust and to work with their South Bristol schools to the benefit of all our pupils.

Ahead of #roadsafetyweek, our children were outside school this morning asking drivers to #speeddown.

Help us by making a pledge, committing to improved road safety(comment below on what you can do to improve road safety around the school).

We loved our visit from @Bristol_RFC players today - inspirational athletes helping our Year 3’s with their reading.

Best of luck for the rest of the season!
