Please note that even if your child is entitled to universal free school meals (i.e. is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2) and you are eligible for free school meals under the "Free School Meals" scheme please do still apply.  Free School Meal children also receive "Pupil Premium" funding which will be used to support your child's education.   

How to pay for school meals
School dinners must be paid for in advance.  Payment can be made by cash, cheque or online either termly or weekly. If you are paying weekly, please send payment in on Monday for that week. If you are paying termly, the school must receive your payment by the end of the first week of term.

If you are paying in cash, please put it in an envelope and mark your child's name, class and the amount you are paying in.  Cheques should be made payable to 'Bristol City Council' and marked clearly on the reverse with your child's name and class.  If you are paying for more than one child with one cheque, please mark the amount to go to each child separately. Please do not leave it to the office to guess these calculations for you!  For example:

          Anna Spencer (3B) - £2.10 
          Aaron Spencer (6J) - £4.20 
          Belle Spencer (5G) - £2.10
