Paying for School Dinners – Reminder

School dinners are payable at £2.40 per day, unless children are in Years R, 1, or 2 or are eligible for free school meals.

If you wish for your child/young person to have school dinners, these cost £2.40 per day.

If your child is in Year R, 1 or 2, they are entitled to universal free school meals. You don’t need to apply for this.

If your child is in Year 3 to Year 14, and you are in receipt of certain means-tested benefits, your child may be eligible for free school meals. You can check your eligibility and apply on the KCC website.

If you are not entitled to free school meals (or you are but have not applied for free school meals), and your child has a school dinner, a charge of £2.40 will be added to your Pay360 account. Log in invitations are being sent out to all new pupils’ parents/carers today.
