Free school meals
If your child is entitled to free school meals, they will have a daily allowance of £1.95 to spend in the kitchen at lunchtime.
The kitchen assistants will have a list at each till of everyone that is entitled to a free school meal and your child should give their name to the cashier so that they can tick them off the list each day. If the pupil does not tell the cashier their name they will have to pay the full amount of the value of the food.
If the pupil wishes to purchase food to a greater amount than the £1.95 allowance they will have to pay the difference at the till.
Application forms and information can be obtained from the Local Authority Website: www.lancashire.gov.uk
To apply, simply ring your local Area Education Office (01254 220711) with details of your name, date of birth and National Insurance number and an immediate on-line decision can be given.
