Our School Meals
At Cringle Brook Primary, we cook our school meals on site. The children are offered a choice of cooked meals, including a vegetarian option and a Halal option and a choice of desserts. Salad, fruit and extra bread is always available. Meals are eaten in the school hall.
Are you eligible for Free School Meals?
Free school meals are available to some children according to family income. It is important to register for entitlement to free school meals, even if your child is in Reception, Year 1. This is so we may receive additional funding (called the pupil premium) which we may use to help your child.
Children are entitled to Free School Meals if their parents, carers or guardians receive any of the following:
Income based job seekers allowance
Income related employment and support allowance
Guarantee pension credit
Child Tax Credit, but not Working Tax Credit, and an annual income lower than the limit set by the
Working Tax Credit Run On because you have ceased work or reduced your working hours to less than 16

We provide free milk to children in the Reception class until the term after their 5th birthday when it becomes payable. Parents will be notified. Milk is chargeable at £8 per term.
Milk may be purchased for those children in any other year groups.
Children who have milk usually drink it just before or after their morning playtime.
