Bocking Primary School

School Meals

We have a fully-utilised kitchen with a range of kitchen equipment so we can provide hot meals for all infant children and those in Key Stage 2 wishing to have a hot meal. Meals are served in our school hall.
Our “Hungry Caterpillar Café” offers a very comprehensive menu with a wide variety of main meal and desserts including a salad bar and fresh fruit.

Hot school meals are available for children in Key Stage 2, at a cost of £2.50 per day.

You may be eligible for free school meals. To be eligible, you must be receiving one of the following:
  • Income support or income-based Job Seekers Allowance;
  • Child Tax Credit with an annual taxable income of less than £16,190 (provided you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit)
  • Pension Guarantee Credit;
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance;
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

Parents and Guardians can check their eligibility online via the link below. A Certificate of Eligibility is available through the website for any child eligible for a free school meal attending the school. This Certificate of Eligibility should be taken to the school, along with any supporting evidence, and the school will register your claim for  Free School Meals.
