School Dinners & Info

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

School Dinners are designed to provide delicious, healthy school meals, with balanced menus that offer pupils great choice. Chartwells 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 in advance through ParentPay as the kitchen prepares the numbers required. Please look at the online menu so that you child is clear which option they want to eat. A full terms menu is displayed online.

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 £2.05 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 following the changes in April 2018?

Free school meals are available to pupils in receipt of, or whose parents are in receipt of, one or more of the following benefits:
• Universal Credit (provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400, as assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods)
• Income Support
• Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
• Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
• Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
• The guarantee element of 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
In addition, the following pupils will be protected against losing their free school meals as
follows (please see page 10 for further details):
• From 1 April 2018, all existing free school meals claimants will continue to receive
free school meals whilst Universal Credit is rolled out. This will apply even if their
earnings rise above the new threshold during that time.
• In addition, any child gaining eligibility for free school meals after 1 April 2018 will
be protected against losing free school meals during the Universal Credit rollout
period.
• Once Universal Credit is fully rolled out, any existing claimants that no longer meet the eligibility criteria at that point (because they are earning above the threshold or are no longer a recipient of Universal Credit) will continue to receive free school meals until the end of their current phase of education (i.e. primary or secondary).

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
