School Dinners

An additional dining hall experience has been created in the KS2 hall for all KS1 children and KS2 children continue to use the main dining hall.

The children will still have a meal option at lunchtime. This would be either a hot meal or a pack lunch option.

Every term there is an International Food Choice week where staff select food from different nations and serve to the children.

Pupils can be paid Thorpetons if they choose a food they have never eaten before.

Thorpepark is committed to providing its children with delicious, well balanced and nutritious meals. Food is freshly prepared on school site.

Free School Meals

At Thorpepark Academy children in our reception class, year one and year two receive a free school lunch if they wish under the current Government UIFSM. This can be withdrawn at any time.

Parents still need to fill in the free meals form if they are entitled which enables the school to claim extra money from the government which we use to help us provide a range of extra trips for children, and this money is linked to parents applying for Free School Meals in the past. In order to continue claiming this money from the government, we need parents to re-register for Free School Meals.

So, if you receive a benefit that gives entitlement to Free School meals (as detailed below) please pop in to school reception where they can provide a form and you help fill it out.

Children of families receiving Income Support, Employment Support Allowance (income related), Income-based Job Seekers allowance or Universal Credit are entitled to receive free school meals. Families receiving support under Part Vi of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 are also entitled.
