I am delighted to announce our new partnership with P&A food management https://www.pafoodmanagement.co.uk/ from September 2018 as our provider of school meals.
Please find attached the initial three week menu. As you can see there is significantly more choice and variety for children including the introduction of a salad bar and different hot options each day. You will also note there is a grab bag option for those parents who want their children to have a lighter option at lunchtime.
Payment for school lunches should be paid via Parentmail.co.uk. Parents who think they may be entitled to free school meals should contact the Area Education Office, Ainsty Road, Harrogate, HG1 4XU (tel 01423 700100) for further information.
As from 1st September 2014 all KS1 children are entitled to free school meals
Children may bring a packed lunch. Supervision is provided throughout the lunch time by two Supervisory Assistants. All drinks brought to school should be in a carton or plastic container. All children have a water bottle and have access to chilled drinking water throughout the day.
To promote healthy eating, the school runs Follifruit every morning at break time for a small cost or children may bring fruit from home for morning break. Crisps and sweets are not allowed at any time.
All Key Stage 1 children have a free piece of fruit or vegetable every morning as part of the government’s School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme.

Free School Meals
Free school meals are available to children whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:
- income support
- income-based job seeker’s allowance
- income-related employment and support allowance
- child tax credit with an income of less than £16,190 and not in receipt of working tax credit
- support under part VI of the immigration and asylum act 1999
- guarantee element of state pension credit.
Where parents are entitled to working tax credit during a four week “run on” period immediately after their employment has ceased, or after they have started to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school meals.
Children who receive income support or income based jobseeker’s allowance in their own right are also entitled to free school meals.
Should you meet the above criteria, you can apply by using the application form in the useful downloads section.
Applications are usually processed the same day. If your child is entitled to free school meals you will receive a letter confirming the date when the meals will start. The school is also notified that your child is entitled to free school meals. In the meantime, you should continue to pay for free school meals until confirmation comes through. Schools may be able to arrange a reimbursement of any monies paid whilst your entitlement is being confirmed.
If you are not entitled to free school meals you will be notified in writing.
