School Meals

The cost of school meals is currently £7.00 per week. This is in line with Bolton Local Authority.

Money for school meals should be sent into school with your child each Monday in an envelope or small container clearly labeled with your child’s name and Dinner Money. You may pay by cash or card via Barclays Pingit app. You may pay weekly, monthly or half-termly in advance.

Our Sponsors have instructed us that debts must not be allowed to accumulate. If we do not receive payments for 2 weeks, children will not be able to continue on school meals.

Free School Meals – If you think you may be entitled to free school meals, please call in any morning to the One Stop Shop at Farnworth Town Hall. Children whose parents are in receipt of Income Support or Income Based Jobseekers Allowance will still qualify for free school meals as previously. In addition, children whose parents are in receipt of Child Tax Credit, but who are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and whose annual income (assessed by the Inland Revenue) does not exceed £16,040 may also be entitled to free school meals.

Please register for free school meals if you are entitled to them, even if your child has a packed lunch.
