At Hazelbury Primary School, we pride ourselves on the quality of our school meals, providing nutritious, healthy food served in an environment that promotes social interaction.
Since September 2014, all children in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 have been offered a free school meal at no cost to parents/ carers (for details, see the document below). The current cost for a school meal in KS2 is £2.30 a day or £11.50 a week.
Free School Meals
If you believe that you may be entitled to claim free school meals for your child, we would encourage you to do so, even if your child currently receives a universal infant free school meal. This is because there is additional funding that can be claimed by Hazelbury based upon the number of pupils entitled to such meals.
You are entitled to free school meals if you receive one of the following:
- Income Support;
- Income-based Jobseekers Allowance;
- Employment and Support Allowance (IR);
- Assistance as an Asylum Seeker under part 6 of the Immigration Act 1999;
- Child Tax Credit only and have an annual income of less than £16,190 (this figure is updated each year from 6th April); and/ or
- the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit.
Unfortunately, if you receive Working Tax Credit, you cannot apply.
If you are not sure whether you can make such a claim, please follow this link to the London Borough of Enfield website for more details.
If you believe your child is entitled to free school meals, please complete the form below and return it to:
Pupil Benefits, PO Box 56, Civic Centre, Silver Street, Enfield, EN1 3XQ
The school can provide support for parents in completing the relevant documentation.
Changing your meal option
As part of the school meals process, we share information with ParentPay about pupils' names and what meal option they have. It is therefore important that the option is not changed regularly as this may result in you getting charged for a meal or one not being ordered.
If your child would like to change from packed lunch to school dinners or vice versa, they may only do so from the first day of a term or half term. If you do wish to do this, please speak to the office.
