Children can either have a school dinner or bring their own packed lunch to school.

Our school meals are provided by Chartwells and are prepared daily in our kitchen, with a choice of healthy main courses and desserts. All children eat their meals in the school hall.

The cost of a school meal is £2.00 per day, and you can pay in advance for the week, month, half term or term. All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to free school dinners.

Please pay by cheque (payable to Carleton Park J & I School) or cash: these should be placed in a sealed envelope, clearly marked with your child’s name and class, and handed to the class teacher on Monday morning.

Special Diets

If your child has any food allergies or requires a special diet please see the links below, and contact the school office if you need any more information:

Free school meals

Free school meals are available to some children according to family income.

To find out if your child qualifies for free school meals, or for further help, you can:

If you’re entitled to register for free school meals please do so, even if your child has a packed lunch: school receives extra funding through the Pupil Premium. Please note, it’s your responsibility to renew your child’s entitlement as needed.
