School Meals


School Meals

Our aim is for children to have a pleasing, positive education experience where they can enjoy healthy food in a safe and nurturing environment. The school menu is a single choice menu, offering vegetarian or a meat meal.  The menu is offered on a 2 week cycle, changed each term. 

Vegetarian meals are available provided prior notification of your child’s dietary requirements is given.  It is not possible to choose between meat and vegetarian options on a daily basis.

We are able to cater for special diets and for those with allergies, subject to confirmation by doctor's letter.  Please contact the office for further information. 

Please note that the menu may change at short notice.

Free School Meals  If you think that your child may be entitled to free school meals please use the online application

An individual request must be made for each of your children.


However, we would kindly ask you to apply for Free School Meals (even if your child is in KS1) as the school will receive additional pupil premium funding should you be entitled if you are in receipt of one or more of the listed benefits:

  • Income Support (IS)
  • Income Based Jobseekers Allowance (IBJSA)
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • An income-related employment and support allowance
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) that as of 6 April 2010 does not exceed £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit -during the four-week period immediately after your employment ceases, or after you start to work less than 16 hours per week, your children are entitled to free school lunches
  • Universal Credit – Please view information on Universal Credit

Pupil Premium is a government funding initiative which aims to ensure that extra money goes to those children who could benefit from it the most. This includes children who have been entitled to free school meals and children who are, or have been at some stage, looked after by the local authority.


KS2 School Children

Parents make payment for school meals via ParentPay.  Login details are available once your child has been admitted to the school. 

Payment for school meals is collected via ParentPay. The cost of a meal is £2.75 but may be subject to change.

Where children prefer to bring a packed lunch to school, children can bring an alternative drink in a plastic bottle or paper carton.  Kilham prides itself on promoting healthy eating and therefore do not allow fizzy drinks, drinks in glass bottles or energy drinks or sweets/chocolate in packed lunches.

Co-operation is requested on ensuring our school remains a NUT FREE ENVIRONMENT due to children and staff in school suffering from life threatening allergies.
