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 ISS Education. 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 sent into school in a named and sealed envelope (available from the school office) or online via the Cypad 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 please see the application form available on our website. The form details the criteria which needs to be met in order to receive Free School Meals. If, after reading this, you still believe your young person is eligible please download the form from the website or request one from the school office, then complete and return the application form to the school office.
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). 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 Free School Meals.
In all cases if you think your young person would meet the criteria for Free School Meals please complete and return the application form in this pack as this may entitle them to additional funding to support their learning as well as Free School Meals.
If you have any questions about any of the above please do not hesitate to contact the School Office.
