Clarborough Primary School

Be the best you can be!

School Dinners

All full time pupils may choose between a freshly prepared school dinner at a cost of £2.30 or can bring in a ‘healthy’ packed lunch. All Infant pupils (Reception to Year 2) qualify for free school meals under the Universal Infant Free School Meals initiative. Our 30-hours nursery children will all receive a hot meal from the menu every day.

We will be offering a combination menu from September. This will be either a hot meal (from the menu), a jacket potato or packed lunch depending on which year group your child is in and on what day you are booking in.  Please see the table in our return to school handbook which can be found in the 'about us' section of this website. These are ordered and paid for via our Parentmail app, 2 weeks in advance. Please speak to any of the office staff for further information. It is possible to pay termly or half termly if preferred.

If your child has any dietary requirement, allergies or intolerances, please inform the office.

Please not, the children will have to stay within their class bubble during lunch time and will eat their lunches in the classrooms.  This is subject to change following any additional guidance from the Department for Education.

Should you receive any of the benefits detailed in the criteria section of the above document, then you may be eligible to apply for Free School meals for your child (regardless of their age).  You can either check your availability online, or by phoning the Free School Meals team on 0115 804 1240.  This will also mean that your child would qualify for free music tuition and would attract additional funding of approximately £1,300 which then has to be used by us to ensure that your child makes progress.
