North Yorkshire School Meals

Our school meals follow a healthy-eating policy.

Our meals are produced freshly every day in our own school kitchen from only:

  • fresh meat and poultry sourced from the region;
  • fruit and vegetables sourced regionally where possible using local suppliers;
  • products free from additives associated with health problems in young children;
  • fats free from hydrogenated oils; with
  • menus that are nutritionally balanced

School dinners are cooked on the premises and are nutritionally balanced. Menus are distributed at the beginning of each term. If a child has a specific dietary requirement please let us know so that our cook can assist with this. There is a cafeteria system operating in school and the children sit at tables with a range of ages to promote a family atmosphere. Children can bring in a packed lunch if they prefer and we provide plates for them to put their food on. We support healthy eating in the school and hope that parents could reflect this in the choice of foods provided in packed lunches. We request that packed lunches do not include sweets, bars of chocolate or fizzy drinks. Please provide spoons for yoghurts. There are lunchtime supervisors who look after the children during and after they have eaten their lunch. Children who have school dinners are encouraged to try new food that they may not have had before. Payment of dinner money should be brought in the envelopes provided by school on a Monday morning to the office. Price: £2.30 per day or £11.50 per week. Cheques or cash are accepted. Please make cheques payable to: Summerbridge CP Primary School. We have a flexible approach towards encouraging children to have school dinners and they have the option to pay for a whole week or select particular days after reading the menu.

Snacks - If you think your child would like to have a snack during the morning playtime we offer the opportunity to buy a drink and a snack. This is an optional facility and costs 10p for a drink of fresh orange juice and 5p for a slice of buttered toast. The children themselves are responsible for looking after snack money so it would be helpful if they had a small purse and kept it in their drawers.
All pupils are provided with a free water bottle with the school logo on.

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.
