Hot Lunches at Charlton Mackrell School
All children in Reception and Key Stage 1 (years 1 and 2) are eligible for a Free School Meal every day. This will be paid for by the Government and is worth £437 a year for every child. This is not based on household income or whether you receive any benefits - every child can have a free lunch, saving you time and money. No more making packed lunches, now your children can eat a hot lunch every day.
We are also giving all our older pupils the opportunity to buy a hot lunch at £2.60 per day and Pre-school pupils at £2.30 per day. This can be arranged for whichever days of the week you wish, but we do ask you to pay in advance.
Lunches are ordered every half term via Parentmail.
Packed Lunches - parents can, of course, pack a lunch for their children. We encourage healthy eating so please do not send in your child with a fizzy drink - water is always available. Chocolate biscuits (eg Club/Penguin) are acceptable, but please do not include sweets or chocolates.
Pre-school have a more stringent policy on food - please see their Food Policy on the Policies page.
