School Meals

With effect from Monday, 19th February our school meals will be provided by Dolce. Our new providers have a wealth of experience in the delivery of school meals services and we are looking forward to working with them. 


How much is a school meal?
The cost of a school meal is £2.45 for Nursery pupils and £2.65 for other paid meals.  All children in Reception to Year 2 are entitled to a free meal via the Universal Infant Free School Grant.  If you think you may be eligible for free school meals, you may use our Free School Meals Eligibility Checker (See link below). 


How can I order my child's lunch?
Meals should be pre-ordered via SchoolGrid.


How do I pay for my child's lunch?

Payment is made via SchoolGrid.


What happens if my child is ill and is not at school one day?
You will receive a credit for any meals not taken.


How do I find out about free school meals eligibility?

If you are receiving certain benefits, a FREE tasty and nutritious school meal is available for your child/ren at Oak Tree Primary School - BUT YOU MUST APPLY!

Benefits include :


  • A free school meal for your child, which is good for their health and could help their learning
  • Savings for you, worth over £350 a year
  • Extra money for the school through Pupil Premium funding, worth at least £900 a year

Pupil Premium is additional funding for:


  • Those children who are registered as eligible for Free School Meals in Reception to Year 6
  • Those children who are LAC (Looked After Children) or Post LAC i.e. adopted from care
  • Any child who has ever been of free school meals, at any time
  • Children of parents serving in the Armed Forces


Data shows that children within these categories sometimes need extra support, tuition or resources to achieve their best. The funding is allocated to diminish the difference between progress of these children and all other children in school. The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by Oak Tree Primary School to address any underlying inequalities between those children who are eligible and those who are not.  This is done in a variety of ways including funding speech and language therapy across the school, funding a Pastoral Lead Teacher to work with families as well as providing additional support in classrooms (where appropriate).


Just registering your child for Free School Meals means that Oak Tree Primary School receives the additional funding even if you don't take up the free meal. Registration is completely confidential and it will not affect any other benefits you may be claiming.


If you require further information then please email at the address above; everything you say will be treated in the strictest confidence.


Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)
The Government provides funding to enable primary schools in England to offer a free meal to every child in their Reception,  Year 1 and Year 2 classes. This provides parents with a potential annual saving of almost £400 per child.
