School Meals

Lunches are cooked on the premises by our dedicated cook Mrs Wainwright and cost £2.50 per day.

All lunches for Key Stage 1 pupils (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes) are free of charge.

Lunches for Key Stage 2 pupils (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) cost £2.50 per day. These prices are reviewed annually by NYCC, at the end of the summer term. Dinner money is payable at the beginning of each week or half-term in cash or cheques (cheques for dinners should be made payable to N.Y.C.C. Welburn School). Children may bring a packed lunch if preferred and these can be eaten in the hall. If you think your child may be entitled to free school meals, please contact the school or the Welfare Team on 01609 533405, for further details.

Free school meals are available to children whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:

  1. income support
  2. income-based job seeker's allowance
  3. income-related employment and support allowance
  4. child tax credit with an income of less than £16,190 and not in receipt of working tax credit
  5. support under part VI of the immigration and asylum act 1999
  6. guarantee element of state pension credit.

Where parents are entitled to working tax credit during a four week "run on" period immediately after their employment has ceased, or after they have started to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school meals.

Children who receive income support or income based jobseeker's allowance in their own right are also entitled to free school meals.

Should you meet the above criteria, you can apply by using the application form in the useful downloads section.

Applications are usually processed the same day. If your child is entitled to free school meals you will receive a letter confirming the date when the meals will start. The school is also notified that your child is entitled to free school meals. In the meantime, you should continue to pay for free school meals until confirmation comes through. Schools may be able to arrange a reimbursement of any monies paid whilst your entitlement is being confirmed.

If you are not entitled to free school meals you will be notified in writing.
