School Meals

Loddon Primary School lunches are prepared and served by Caterlink.

A meat or fish, vegetarian and salad option are offered every day with a healthy pudding option.

The latest menu is available at the bottom of this page or you can get a copy from our school office. A school lunch is priced at £2.53 for children in years 3-6 (price correct at September 2023).

Free School Meals

School dinners provide a healthy, nutritious and tasty meal. Sitting down together helps develop children’s social skills and research suggests that a school meal can improve a child’s concentration. Children registered for free school meals can choose each day whether to have a school dinner or to bring in their own packed lunch. We make sure it is not obvious who is having a free meal.

Children registered for free school meals also release additional funding to support them in school (for example they are not expected to contribute voluntary donations for school trips and would only pay half of any residential cost).

For more information please contact the office or go to

If you think your child’s is entitled please complete this application form and return it in confidence to the office. In most cases you do not have to show any proof of benefit; you will only need to provide your child’s name date of birth and your name, address and NI number. The school will then contact WBC in confidence to confirm your eligibility. To be entitled you must receive one of the following

  • Income support
  • Income based Job Seeker’s Allowance
  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit) and have an annual income that does not exceed £16,190
  • The Guarantee element of the State Pension Credit
