Dinners are cooked on the premises daily and provide a balanced and nourishing meal. Children may choose to have school dinners or packed lunches. They may change at the beginning of a half term (giving one week’s notice, please). In accordance with school policy on healthy eating, fresh water is available for all children, including those eating packed lunches. Please do not send other drinks. Dinner money is collected on the first working day of the week. Payment may be made by cash or, preferably, by cheque for the week, month or, if possible, for the half-term. Cheques should be made payable to "NYCC Kell Bank C.E. Primary School ". Where payment is by cash it would be appreciated if the correct amount could be sent in an envelope with the child's name on the front. Children from families receiving Income Support qualify for free school meals. 

Free School Meals

Free school meals are available to children whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:

  • income support
  • income-based job seeker's allowance
  • income-related employment and support allowance
  • child tax credit with an income of less than £16,190 and not in receipt of working tax credit
  • support under part VI of the immigration and asylum act 1999
  • guarantee element of state pension credit.

Where parents are entitled to working tax credit during a four week "run on" period immediately after their employment has ceased, or after they have started to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school meals.

Children who receive income support or income based jobseeker's allowance in their own right are also entitled to free school meals. 

Should you meet the above criteria, you can apply by using the application form in the useful downloads section.

Applications are usually processed the same day. If your child is entitled to free school meals you will receive a letter confirming the date when the meals will start. The school is also notified that your child is entitled to free school meals. In the meantime, you should continue to pay for free school meals until confirmation comes through. Schools may be able to arrange a reimbursement of any monies paid whilst your entitlement is being confirmed.

If you are not entitled to free school meals you will be notified in writing.
