School lunches

We are very lucky at Brough Primary School as we have our own canteen and kitchens. This means that our meals are prepared on site by staff who know the school really well.

All pupils in EYFS, Y1 and Y2 are entitled to a daily free school meal. This is part of the government initiative called Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM).

Meals for pupils in Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6 cost £2.30 per day. This is 15p per meal less than the local authority recommended amount.

You are, of course, welcome to send your child with a packed lunch if you would prefer.

We do not require you to let us know in advance if your child will have a school meal or a packed lunch, this information is collected each day with the morning register so don’t worry if they only want to stay for a school meal some days or have packed lunch on some others. We will make it as easy for you as possible.

We also offer the option of a jacket potato with a filling, and a wrap/sandwich option. Vegetables and salad bar choice will be available along with the dessert of the day.

Free school meals

Some pupils are entitled to free school meals throughout their time in school due to Pupil Premium funding which is another government initiative. The eligibility criteria is listed below. If you feel that your child could be eligible for free school meals, and pupil premium funding, please contact the school office who will help you to apply or follow the link below.

Pupil Premium funding does not just allow your child to have a free meal each day, it also provides the school with £1345 per eligible pupil. This funding supports your child in school with educational provision amongst other things.

Your child may be eligible for Pupil Premium if you are in receipt of any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Jobseeker’s Allowance (income based)
  • Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (but NOT Working Tax Credit)


Why claim?

  • Save hundreds of pounds per year
  • Extra funding for the school in the form of Pupil Premium
  • It’s your entitlement
  • No downside
  • Other pupils and parents will not know you are claiming
