In partnership with the county council's caterer, Chartwells, we provide a nutritious lunchtime meal for pupils attending The Globe Primary Academy who are either eligible for Universal Infant Free School Meals, eligible for Free School Meals or whose parents and carers choose to purchase hot meals for them. Details of the menus and further information can be found here.
Universal Infant Free School Meals for pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2
From September 2014, the introduction by the Government of Universal Infant Free School Meals means that all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be provided with a free hot meal at lunch time.
Free School Meals (for children in Key Stage 2 - Years 3 to 6)
All children eligible for Free School Meals will also receive a free hot meal at lunch time if you have registered for them to receive this.
Applying for Free School Meals
If you think your child may be entitled to receive free school meals i.e. you are in receipt of Income Support, Income based Jobseekers Allowance, Income related Employment & Support, or some Child Tax Credits (not Working Tax Credits) please collect a form from the school office to register for this.
Buying a hot school lunch for your child, if they are not eligible for Free School Meals
You can also purchase lunches in advance for your child in Years 3 to 6, even if they are not eligible to receive Free School Meals by using the meal selector website provided by Chartwells. Please click here for more information.
Parents wishing to provide a packed lunch may do so if they wish. Please whenever possible try to limit sweet items and chocolate to a minimum and kindly provide a drink of water, squash or juice rather than fizzy drinks.
