School meals cost £2.25 per day from September 2018 and the School is responsible for the recording of meals and collection of payments where necessary.

Parents wishing to buy school meals for their children may pay weekly, monthly or termly in advance.  Our preferred method of payment is via our online payment system available here:

Online transfers, cash and cheque are also accepted

Cheques should be made payable to Claverdon Primary School. Cheques or cash should be sent in an envelope clearly marked with the child's name and the amount enclosed on the first day of week/month/term. If your child is absent, this amount of money will be credited to the following week/month/term. Please contact the school office for the online banking details

Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)

From September 2014 school meals are FREE to all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.

Free School Meals are also available to those on a limited income - please ask at the School Office for more information in confidence.

If you do not wish your child to have school meals, there are 2 further options:

Your child can return home for lunch.  In this case, your child may not return to school before 1.00 pm as supervision is provided on the basis of the number of children having a meal on site.

You may provide your child with a packed lunch.   You will need to provide your child with a secure sandwich box, clearly named.  For safety reasons, hot drinks, glass containers or cans of fizzy drinks should not be included. Please note we promote healthy eating in school and would ask you to consider packing healthy option food for your child.  No food containing nuts should be used in packed lunches or snacks as we have children in school with severe nut allergy
