School Meals

School Dinners

Pupil meals are £2.30 a day. Please send the your money in a well sealed, named envelope so your child can hand it in to the class teacher.

Parents are welcome to have a school meal with their child, any day, but please order your meal at the school office, and pay the adult price of £3.47, before 9am on the day required.

Book a Birthday Table

To book a birthday table you can either come to the school office or email us on admin@lakenheath.suffolk.sch.uk .  All we need to know is the childs name, the age they will be, and if you will be bringing in a cake.

Free School Meals

You may be aware that the government is currently allocating additional funding to schools in the form of 'The Pupil Premium'. One of the criteria used to calculate this additional funding is the number of pupils at a school who receive Free School Meals (FSMs). In common with most schools it is likely that a number of parents/carers whose children attend Lakenheath fail to claim FSMs, even though they are entitled to them.

As the school will recieve additional funding based on the number of children who recieve FSMs I am writing to all parents and carers to ask them, if they believe that they may be entitled to claim FSMs for their children and do not already do so, to make a claim. As I am sure you will agree the children at our school can only benefit if we are able to attract additional funding. Not only that, our catering team provides an excellent range of healthy lunch options that are enjoyed daily by a significant number of our pupils. Your child may well be able to access these free of charge.

In order to claim FSMs a parent/carer must be claiming one of the following benefits:

  • Income support
  • Income-related employment and support allowance
  • Income-based job seekers allowance
  • Child tax credit (but no working tax credit is being received by the claimant or his/her partner and the combined annual income as assessed by HMIR on a TC602 form is not above £16,190)
  • The guaranteed element of pension tax credit
  • Asylum seeker under part VI of the immigration and asylum act 1999

If you think that you are eligible to apply for FSMs for your child, or is you are not sure, please talk to the school office.
