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 £2.55 per day. This remains below 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.
On a Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning playtime we run a tuck shop from the canteen. This
sells a number of items at a low cost for pupils in Y3-Y6.
There is no need to pre-order any item, the children can bring their money on the day and buy from the canteen at playtime.
We currently sell the following items.
Toast, crumpets, teacake – all are 20p
Milkshake – 40p
Bag of raisins – 20p
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:
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)
Save hundreds of pounds per year
Extra funding for the school in the form of Pupil Premium
It’s your entitlement
Other pupils and parents will not know you are claiming
