School Meals

Our school meals are cooked fresh on site each day by Chartwells. We operate on a three week rolling menu. In addition to the two main courses on offer, on a Monday - Thursday children also have the option of a jacket potato or a sandwich. On those days, there is also a fresh salad bar available, which is served by the older children (as stated in our Behaviour Policy).



All school meals are served in the school hall, which is adjacent to the school kitchen. Lunch service starts at 12.30pm each day.


School dinners cost £2.00 per day (£2.10 from Tuesday 5 November 2019) for those children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 who are not eligible for a free school meal.

Payment should be made in advance either via ParentPay, or in cash to the school office.

Universal Infant Free School Meals

Under the universal infant free school meals (UIFSM) scheme, all children in Reception, year 1 and year 2 are able to receive a free meal each day at school.

Free School Meals

Depending on your circumstances, your child may be eligible for free school meals. If your child is eligible for free school meals, as well as receiving a free hot meal each day, the school will receive a small amount of extra funding. This funding is available for children throughout the school, even those in Reception, year 1 and year 2.


To find out if you are eligible for free school meals you can check online here:

Alternatively, contact the school office who will be able to apply on your behalf.


If your child is, or becomes, eligible for free school meals, they will continue to be eligible until they leave Oldmixon Primary School.


In addition to a free meal each day, children who are eligible for free school meals will also receive a carton of milk each day.
