Harcourt Primary are very proud of the quality of lunch times meals that we are able to provide our pupils with.

As a healthy school all the meals available to the children follow the food standard guidelines.

Universal Free School Meals - Foundation Stage and Key Stage One

Currently all pupils in Year R, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal provided through the government's Universal Free School Meal Scheme.

If you are currently in receipt of one of the benefits below  your child may be entitled to a free school meal. 

  • Universal Credit - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)

  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance

A school meal costs £2.30 per day or £11.50 a week. As from Monday 6 September 2010 our new school dinner protocol came into force which means that school dinners will need to be paid for in advance.  This will mean that if payments for school dinners are not up to date your child will not be provided with a cooked school dinner and parents/carers will need to supply their child with a packed lunch from home.

Children have the opportunity to have a school packed lunch instead of a hot cooked meal. The cost will be £2.30 and the lunch will consist of:

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Cheese Sandwich Tuna Wrap Ham Sandwich Egg Mayo Baguette Cold Cheese & Tomato Pizza

Each packed lunch will also contain fruit, vegetable sticks, a pudding and water or milk. Bread will also be available every day.

If your child is entitled to free school meals but brings in a packed lunch we hope they will take up the new school packed lunch. 

In KS1 all children receive free fruit during morning breaktime. If your child is under the age of 5 they will receive free milk.

Our Tuck shop is available during morning break for the children in Key Stage 2. The children can choose from a selection of fruit, smoothies and milk. Children are responsible for looking after their own money until break.
