Please note: As of September 2016, our kitchen only serve vegetarian meals.
Dinner money must be paid for on the Monday of each week. Occasionally children do forget to pay, therefore Tuesdays are our cut off point. This is for banking purposes and to allow the kitchen to prepare the correct amount of food each day.
Children can send their money in an envelope, stating their name, class, and which day(s) they are opting for a hot meal and give to their class teacher. This will then be transported to the office in the register at 9.00am.
Alternatively, payment can be made in the office.
You can pay for more than one week at a time if convenient e.g. the whole half-term.
If your child would like a school dinner but requires a special medical diet due to a food allergy/intolerance, please click on the form below. You can either print it yourself or we will provide one for you in the school office. This form needs to be filled out and signed by a health professional. City Catering will do their best to provide options for your child but this may not be possible for children with very restricted diets.
If you would like more details, please contact Jessica Mhesuria (Registered Dietitian, City Catering) on 0116 454 5068.
Please note that the Disclaimer form below is only to be filled out by parents/carers if you choose not to fill out a medical diet school meals request form and feel you can manage your child's dietary requirements without a special menu.

You can also pick up an application form from school (we will be happy to help you fill it out), or from any of Leicester City Council's Customer Service Centres.
You do not need to renew your application each year. Once we issue a free school meal voucher, it remains valid until your child leaves school, unless your circumstances change and you no longer meet the qualifying criteria.

Did you know?...
If your child is entitled to Free School Meals, the school will receive £1,320 Pupil Premium money to spend on him/her.
What if I qualify but don't want my child to have school dinners? This is completely fine, they can bring a packed lunch but we still urge you to register your child so that they receive the £1,320.
How will we spend the £1,320 on your child?
The money is designed to support your child's achievement in all aspects of school life.
