School Lunches

Our School Lunches are delicious!

We are lucky to have a kitchen on site at Brassington Primary School where our cook Mrs Johnson cooks delicious fresh meals everyday.

Children in Reception, Year 1 & 2 are entitled to universal free school meals.  When children move up to year 3, school lunch will be charged at £3.25/ day.

School dinners are paid for via an electronic payment system called Parentpay, Each parent will have their own account where they can pay for their child's dinners, this system is also used for school trips.

If your child has any specific dietary requirements, please notify the school office in the first instance.  You can download the Derbyshire County Council Medical Diet information letter here, and the application form here.

The school requires two weeks notice if you would like your child to change their lunch choice from cooked lunch to packed lunch from home.

Some children may also be entitled to Free School Meals, depending on the family income and entitlement to certain benefits.  If you are eligible, your child(ren) will receive their meals free and we will also receive £1385 per year to spend on your children to enhance their time at school (Pupil Premium) - please see our Pupil Premium page for information about how we spend this money on each child.

Applying for Free School Meals is so easy, and only limited members of school staff will know who is entitled to the meals, so you don't need to worry about anyone else knowing your personal situation.  Just go to Derbyshire County Council's Free School Meals page and fill in the simple online form to find out if you are eligible.

Parents with children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 who think they are entitled should still apply even though those children are getting a free meal anyway because the Government will still pay Pupil Premium for those children which will cover costs such as school trips, school milk, swimming contributions etc.
