Free school meals
Depending on your circumstances your child may be entitled to free school meals.
If you are on a low income, and in receipt of certain benefits, your child is not only entitled to a free school meal, but also things like free milk, help towards school trips and other support. We would urge all eligible parents to apply, as this application ensures that your child's school receives the additional funds to be able to provide this. You are entitled to this additional support if you have a child in Kirklees who is in full time education, and you receive one or more of the following:
- Income Support
- Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
- Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
- Child Tax Credit, but are not entitled to a Working Tax Credit and your annual income (as assessed by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs) is less than £16,190
- Support under Part V1 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Universal Credit
From September 2014, all children in Reception and Key Stage 1 (year 1 and year 2) became entitled to free school meals. This entitlement for all stops after year 2. From year 3 onwards, families who satisfy the above criteria can continue to claim free school meals for their children.

From Monday 2nd December 2019, we introduced an electronic meal ordering system in school called 'Cypad Meal Selector'. Parents pay for school meals in the usual way via ParentPay. Children can then choose their meal themselves during morning registration using the classroom whiteboard.
Please make sure that your child has sufficient funds on their ParentPay account, to pay for the meals ordered.
Your child will make their meal selection by 9am each morning, so it is important that they are here on time. If your child is late, they may not be able to have their preferred choice.
The software help children understand meal choices better, it encourages food learning and helps to reduce waste.If you would like us check your eligibility and / or make an application to Kirklees Council on your behalf, please download and complete the attached form and return to the school ASAP
