School Meals

Chartwells provide a range of freshly cooked meals daily for our school. The well-trained staff use high quality ingredients to offer a menu which complies with the Government’s new food and nutrient standards.

School meals include a wide range of healthy options and combine traditional favourites such as roast dinners and pasta dishes. A selection of fresh fruit and vegetables are on offer and pupils have access to our salad bar.

“At Chartwells, the safety of the pupils we cater for is our number one priority. We understand the importance of ensuring that pupils with medical diets can continue to enjoy a safe, balanced meal alongside their peers in school.

As such, the Chartwells medical diet policy has been developed specifically for the school kitchen environment and enables us to cater to as many children as possible, as safely as possible.”

Free School Meals

Parents claiming some benefits can claim free school meals for any of their children who are registered at a Staffordshire school and who would normally be at school at lunch time. School meals are a good way to ensure that your child eats well at lunchtime and you can save yourself time and money.

Even if you don’t want your children to have the meals, claiming them helps their school. The more eligible parents who claim meals, the more funding the school receives.

Free School Meals for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children

If you have an infant age child (those in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2) they can receive free school meals even if you don’t meet the entitlement criteria and without completing an application for them.

Pupil Premium

For every pupil registered with us as eligible under the entitlement criteria, the school will receive extra funding. This is called the pupil premium. It is used to help raise achievement levels.

Each school decides how to spend the funding. They must publish details of what they have spent it on and the impact it has had.

So that schools (and pupils) can continue to benefit from this extra funding it is important that parents who do meet the entitlement criteria continue to register their claim with us.
