School meals cost £2.40 per day (£12.00 per week) which is payable on a Monday in advance. We are able to accept payments for up to a term in advance and many parents find this a more convenient way to pay. We strongly encourage parents to pay via the online 'Scool Money' system. Please enquire at the school office for further information. Any money or cheques for school meals must be sent to your child’s class teacher in a named envelope marked ‘school meals’.
If you would like to change the arrangements for your child’s meals, it is very important that you let the school office staff know. Please complete an orange ‘Change of meal pattern’ form giving at least one week’s notice and hand it in as soon as possible. These forms are available from the school office.
As you will be aware, Lightcliffe is a ‘Healthy School’ and promotes healthy eating throughout the school day. We are firm believers in the benefits of having a well-balanced meal at lunchtime and I thought it would be useful to remind parents that free school meals may be available for some children. Parents do not have to pay for school lunches if they receive any of the following:
Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.
Your child may also get free school meals if you get any of these benefits and your child is both:
Children who receive any of the qualifying benefits listed above in their own right are also eligible to receive free school meals. If you would like any further information, please contact the Local Authority benefits section on 01422357257. If you require advice or further information, please see a member of the office staff who will be happy to help you.
