FREE SCHOOL MEALS

  • To apply for Free School Meals or to check whether you are eligible to apply, please use the following link http://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/schools/free-school-meals
     
  • Applications are processed by the Awards Team and (if approved) take effect FROM THE DATE that the form is RECEIVED by KCC. It cannot be backdated.
     
  • Any meals taken prior to the commencement of the approved Free School Meal Application MUST be paid for. Please ensure that any outstanding debt is cleared as soon as possible.

PAID MEALS

  • If you wish for your child to have a school meal every day, please ensure that you send the payment for your child’s meals to school EVERY Monday.

 

  • If you wish for your child to have a school meal only on certain days it would be preferable for you to send payment for the meals (with a note detailing which days meals are required) EVERY Monday.  However, as this can sometimes be last minute, payment on the day is acceptable.

 

  • The school will not authorise the kitchen to provide a meal to pupils who have no payment or are in debt.  Instead the school will contact the parent to advise that they will need to either bring the money or a packed lunch to school immediately. 

PAYMENT METHODS

Payment can be made by:

  • CASH - Please either deliver directly to the school kitchen OR hand it in to the School Office.
     
  • DEBIT/CREDIT CARD - On-line by visiting Principal Catering's website - www.principals-catering.com. Parents will need to register their child before being able to use this facility.
