School Meals

May Park Primary provides a range of healthy hot and cold school meals each day which are completely free to all the children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Fresh water and fruit is available daily. For all other children the cost of a meal is £2.40 per day (£12.00 per week).

Children can choose from meat, vegetarian, halal, jacket potato or the salad bar.  The salad bar provides a choice of cold meats, eggs, cheese or tuna mayonnaise, plus a range of pasta, rice or pulse salads. All are served with a wrap and selection of salad vegetables.


Packed Lunches

Your child may bring a packed lunch to school in the morning at the start of the day. We request that the lunch is cold, healthy food, i.e. sandwiches, wraps, pasta, rice, meat, cheese, fish, vegetables with fruit and yogurt rather than sweets or chocolate.


At May Park we are striving to be a cash free school so all payments must be paid in advance via My Child at School (MCAS). LINK TO COME

Do you think your child may be entitled to Free School Meals?

This is not the same as the Universal Free School Meals provided by the Government for Children in Reception, Year 1 & Year 2.

Pupil Premium funding is extra money paid direct to schools for each child who is eligible for free school meals due to the household being on a low income. It is used to support your child’s education by funding valuable support like extra tuition, additional teaching staff or after school.

Under current rules, your child might be eligible for free school meals if you receive any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit
