Kennel Lane School is able to provide school meals for all our learners in school. The current cost of a meal is £2.30 per day. Our school meal provider is currently ISS. A copy of the current menu can be found on our school website or in your young person’s Home/School Liaison Book. Your young person can make their choices daily in class each morning.
It is extremely important that school meals are paid for in advance daily, weekly, monthly or termly. This can be done by cash or cheque (made payable to ISS Catering) sent into school in a named and sealed envelope (available from the school office) or online via the new online system. More information on the online service can be found at www.feedinghungryminds.co.uk . Any debt over £11.50 (one week’s meals) on an account will automatically be chased weekly until paid.
If you think your young person may be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) please see the criteria which needs to be met, and an application form, available at https://www.bracknell-forest.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/schools/school-meals/how-do-i-apply-free-school-meals . Bracknell Forest Council will notify school of the outcome of your application.
You may also be aware of the Government initiative which entitles all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils to a free school meal (Universal Free School Meals). It is, however, important that parents with learners in these year groups who also meet the criteria for FSM still apply for the pupil premium (FSM) funding (using the same link above). This will make sure the school receives the funding to which they are entitled to.
Please note: If your young person is moving into Year 3 in September they will no longer be entitled to have a Universal Free School Meal under this initiative and you will therefore need to pay for your young person’s school meal or complete an application for FSM.
If you have any questions about any of the above please do not hesitate to contact the School Office.
