At Pippins School, we use Surrey Commercial Services to provide our school meal service. Cooked meals, including a vegetarian option, are prepared daily in our kitchen and children are offered a choice of main courses and desserts. Salads and fruit are always available. Meals are eaten in the dining hall.
The cost of a school meal in September 2019-2020 is £2.40. You can pay through Arbor preferable, in advance or cheques made payable to 'Pippins School'; placed in a sealed envelope clearly marked with the child’s name and class and placed in the 'dropbox' located at the school office.
Some people like to choose a mix of school dinners and packed lunch for their child – that’s absolutely fine
Please see the School Menu below.
Free School Meals
Free school meals are available to some children according to family income. It’s important to register for entitlement to free school meals, even if your child has a packed lunch – this is so we can receive additional funding (called the pupil premium) which we can use to help your child.
Children are entitled to Free School Meals if their parents, carers or guardians receive any of the following:
- Income support
- Income based job seekers allowance
- Income related employment and support allowance
- Guarantee pension credit
- Child Tax Credit, but not Working Tax Credit, and an annual income lower than the limit set by the Government
- Working Tax Credit Run On because you have ceased work or reduced your working hours to less than 16 per week
To find out if your child qualifies for free school meals, please speak to a member of staff in the school office.
