  • 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.


  • We operate a 'No Dosh, No Nosh' Policy.  This means that if you wish your child to receive a school meal every day or on some days, you MUST book and pay for them in advance EVERY Monday (or first day of the week). 


  • The school will not authorise the kitchen to provide a meal to pupils who have no payment or are in debt. Failure to pay for meals in advance will result in parents receiving a phone call from the school or catering contractor advising that a school meal cannot be provided unless payment is received.  Parents will be informed that they will need to either bring the money or a packed lunch to school immediately. 


  • If you wish for your child to have a school meal only on certain days you must 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.



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.
