School Meals

Wymondham CE Primary School works with Leicestershire School Food Support to provide good value, nutritionally based school meals.


Our school meals are freshly prepared daily at St Francis School and brought to Wymondham by courier in special insulated containers. Our staff are fully trained in handling and serving food safely and at the correct temperatures.


We actively encourage good quality nutrition and children have a variety of choices of vegetables, salad and fruit each day.


  • Dinners cost £2.55 per day for Key Stage 2 children.
  • Parents may also apply for free school meals for their child – please contact the school office for further details.
  • Dinners are free for all children in Reception and Years 1 and 2.


Dinner money needs to be paid every Monday. Payments should be made via Arbor by logging in to your account online.


We also encourage healthy choices for children bringing packed lunches from home. Packed lunches need to include:


  • Something substantial (such as a sandwich, a wrap or some pasta).
  • Some vegetables or fresh fruit.
  • A yogurt or healthy dessert.
  • A drink (water or fruit juice).
  • We advise against sending sweets and fizzy drink.


Fresh, cold water is always available to all children.


We currently have no children with a nut allergy, however when we do, we operate a nut-free school. Please advise the class teacher if your child has any specific dietary need and we will work together to support them.


School dinners are served daily in the school hall where children eat together to enjoy both school meals and packed lunches.


Please contact the school for more advice or information if required.

Free School Meals


Free school meals are available to children from low income households. If your child is eligible for free school meals, not only will they benefit from a free healthy and nutritious meal every lunch time, the school will also receive additional funding (Pupil Premium) to help them fulfil their potential at school as well.


Who is eligible?


Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:


  • Income Support

  • income-based Job seekers Allowance

  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance

  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit

  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

  • Universal Credit


Children who get any of the above benefits in their own right (i.e. they get benefits payments directly, instead of through a parent or guardian) can also get free school meals.
