At Harrow Gate Primary school meals are provided by Food Stars, our in-house catering team. There is a fantastic selection of hot and cold food each day. There is always a hot main meal, hot vegetarian choice, jacket potato or a cold sandwich. There is also a wide variety of puddings each day. Children choose their meal each morning so that we can make sure they always get their choice. You can see our current menus here:

School meals cost £2.25 and this needs to be paid for on our app called MCAS - the school office will help you set this up when you start with us.


Free School Meals

You can claim free school meals for a child if they are in full-time education, you are responsible for the child, and you get at least one of the following benefits:

  • Income support
  • Income based job seekers allowance
  • Income related employment and support allowance
  • Guaranteed pension credit
  • Child tax credit with an annual income each year of less than £16,190 (as assessed by tax credits)
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Universal credit (provided you have an annual earned income of no more than £7400 or £616.67 monthly)

If you receive child tax credit and working tax credit, your child will not qualify for free school meals.


Universal Free School Meals

Even if your child receives Universal Free School Meal (Reception, year 1 and year 2) it is still important to make an application as the school will receive additional funding, known as the pupil premium, for every eligible pupil.
