Our Kitchen is run by Miss Kim Simon, Catering Manager and a team of qualified staff. The school is supported by professional catering consultants who check our meals meet the national standards on nutritional value.

School menus are run on a termly basis, with a three week rotation. The menus are published on ParentApp. We charge £2.20 per meal and this should be paid in advance on ParentPay.

Advance notice is not needed to have a school dinner, children choose what they would like for dinner each day.

If you provide your child with a packed lunch please remember that we are a healthy eating school and a nut free school. We therefore ask parents to avoid sending in any nut based foods into the school to reduce the risk of serious allergic reactions.

Free School Meals

There are NO universal free school meals in Overchurch Junior School.

Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:

  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit – if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)

If you think you may now be entitled to means tested free school meals for your children, please complete the form on ParentApp or call in to the School Office and we will submit an application on your behalf.
