Annie Lennard Primary School

Lunchtime Arrangements

School meals are available and children with special dietary requirements can be catered for.

Hot meals

Currently cost £2.50 daily or £12.50 weekly. Dinner money must be paid online via ParentPay BEFORE meals are taken.  The school does not cook meals on site and, therefore, all dinners must be ordered by 9:15am.

Free school meals

  • You may be entitled to free school meals if you are in receipt of the following
  • Income Support
  • Income – Based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Employment and Support Allowance
  • Guaranteed Pension Credit (inc child tax credit)
  • Support under Part VI of the immigration and Asylum Act 1999

You can use the link below to see if you can receive FSM (free school meals) or collect a paper copy from the office.

If you receive any working tax credit regardless of annual household income you will not qualify for free school meals.

If you think you qualify for free school meals then please ask for a form at the school office. We encourage parents to apply even if they do not wish their child to have a school meal because under the LA budget formula there is an increased funding for children entitled to free meals. Please ask for further details.

Packed Lunches Children can bring a packed lunch to school. This should be brought in a small lunch box or bag clearly marked with your child’s name. Fizzy drinks and sweets are not allowed.

Snacks and drinks

All children are encouraged to bring a drink (no fizzy drinks) in a refillable drinks bottle to school each day. The school has a water cooler system and bottles can be refilled during the day as needed.

Free fruit is available for all children.
