Universal Free School Meals


All pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are able to receive a school meal at no cost to the parent/guardian as announced by the Government.  School meals are healthy, tasty, social and fun and choosing a school lunch for your child/children will help save you up to £450 per year if you take up the offer.  A school lunch will also provide a varied and balanced diet and provide the right amount of energy to ensure that your child can work better in the afternoons.


School meals for years 3, 4, 5 and 6 are £2.35 per day. 


The bank details for payment are as follows:


Sort Code:         30-97-95

Account Number:    34888860

Account Name:     Monkshouse Primary School

Bank:              Lloyds, Hall Place, Spalding, PE11 1SF


Please ensure your child's surname and reference (dinners) is always used. This enables payments to be allocated efficiently to avoid confusion and the need for the office to seek clarification from you. 


Any cash payments (correct amounts please) need to be placed in a sealed named envelope. If change is required, it will be sent home with your child at the end of the school day.


Pupil Premium - Free School Meals


Even if you don't want your children to have the meals, claiming them helps the school obtain additional funding to support your child's learning. The more eligible parents who claim free school meals, the more funding the school receives to support our children's learning.

Who can get Free School Meals?


You can claim for free school meals for your children if you receive any of the following:


  • Income Support
  • Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit but not Working Tax Credit and the household income is not more than £16,190 (as at April 2012). Please note anyone receiving Working Tax Credit, regardless of income, will not qualify.
  • The guarantee element of State Pension Credit from 30th April 2005
  • Support under part V1 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999


Unless in the Working Tax Credit 'run on' - the payment someone may recieve for a further 4 weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit.

If you would like to apply for pupil premium including free school meals, please speak to the school office for further information on how to do this.
