School Meals

The school has a bright, modern dining room where pupils enjoy their meals. There is also a separate area for children with packed lunches. Hot food is provided for pre-school breakfasts, for break and at lunchtime.

Our meals are provided by Metrofresh, an in-house service of the Council, which provides meals to many primary and secondary schools in Wigan. Metrofresh has consulted with student councils and a borough-wide focus group to ascertain what students expect from a modern school meals service. Menus meet all Government food-based standards and are fully-compliant with the nutritional based standards brought in from September 2009.

Cashless Catering

The school operates a ‘biometric’ catering system. The system recognises an image of the pupil’s finger (not a fingerprint) which then allows them to load cash on to their electronic account at the machines situated adjacent to the dining room. Money can be loaded before school, at break or at lunchtime. Accounts can be topped up for a number of meals in advance or on a daily basis. When pupils have chosen their food, their finger is scanned and their account debited.

Free School Meals

Children can have free school meals if their parents receive one of the following:
• Income Support
• Income-based Jobseekers’ Allowance
• Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
• Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
• The guaranteed element of the State Pension Credit
• Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by H.M. Revenue and Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
• Working Tax Credit ‘run on’ – the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

For more details, or to apply, then phone Wigan Council Customer Services Contact Centre on 01942 489002. Lines are open 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 12:30pm on Saturday.

If your child is entitled to free school meals then please do apply as it benefits both yourself and the school. The Government provides funds called the ‘Pupil Premium’ and the amount received by school is based on the number of pupils receiving free school meals. So the more free meals provided, the more funds school will receive the help children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
