School Meals

School Dinners

From September 2014 every child in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 no longer have to pay for a school dinner. They are entitled to universal free school meal.

At Hart Primary School, our cook prepares fresh healthy school meals every day. Often these dishes are based on home favourites. We hope that all pupils will take up this offer.

Eating a healthy meal is known to improve behaviour, concentration and the ability to achieve. That’s why it’s especially important for children to eat a delicious, healthy meal at school.

A lot is asked of pupils and students throughout the school day. We believe that a balanced, healthy school lunch is vital to help make sure they’re nutritionally re-charged to work through the afternoon and able to deliver their best.


School Meal Costs &  Free School Meals

From April 2023, the cost of a school meal for children in Nursery, Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6 is £2.53 per day or £12.65 per week. This is payable via Parent Pay.

Nursery ‘Family Dining’

At Hart Primary we believe that meal times are for bonding and communication.

The dinner table is a place of community. Eating together gives us the opportunity to talk, laugh and share. Taking time out to catch up and talk lets us truly connect.

In Nursery, we provide a ‘family dining experience’ for our children. We use these times to model healthy eating behaviours, meal etiquette and social skills. All of our Early Years children learn how to set a table, how to use a knife and fork, develop table manners and etiquette, try new foods and develop social skills through meal times. 

We do not charge for childcare over lunchtime, but parents are required to pay the daily cost of a lunch which is £2.53 per day or £12.65 per week.

Our Values and Ethos

We have a set of school values that were devised in conjunction with our Governors, pupils, parents and staff

Friendship & Trust

Always our Best
