Hot meals are cooked in the school hall kitchen. The children have a choice between a meat or vegetarian option. In the summer term there is the addition of a picnic option. Alternatively, children can bring a packed lunch from home.
Our pupils make their meal choice at registration time which allows our cook to plan the quantities required and ensure the pupils get a meal of their choice.
Further details of the Hampshire Primary School Menus are available at Hampshire Primary School Menu.
A free school meal (Universal Free School Meal) is provided for children in Year R, 1 and 2 if you wish them to have one and they request one at registration time.
The cost of school meals for pupils in KS2 is £2.15 per day. From September 2018 it will increase to £2.30 per day.
You can either make lunch payments online (using debit or credit card) or you can pay by cheque or cash directly to the school office.
Are you eligible for free school meals?
The Government gives money to schools to help children from lower income families do their very best. This funding is called a ‘Pupil Premium’. For every child registered, Sparsholt C of E Primary School receives funding which enables us to provide additional support and resources.
You can use the Hampshire eligibility checker to see if you qualify for Pupil Premium - https://www.cloudforedu.org.uk/ofsm/hants/
Alternatively ask at the school office to do this for you. We will need some information from you to check your eligibilty (your name, address, national insurance number or asylum support service number), along with your child's name and date of birth.
