We do our best to accommodate any child for school meals when difficult family circumstances arise and we will strive to ensure that a “packed lunch” child receives a school meal should there be a problem on a particular day. You will still be required to pay for the meal(s).

Your child may be eligible for Free School Meals. Please visit www.wirral.gov.uk and search for Free School Meals. Eligibility includes -

  • Income Support
  • Income based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Guaranteed Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit with a total annual taxable income of less than £16,190 and are not receiving Working Tax Credit
  • income related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Universal Credit

If you are a foster carer, and receiving a fostering allowance, you are not eligible to claim free school meals for those children you are fostering from school year 3 and above.

Cash Payments – we do not accept cash payment for meals in school but you can still pay by cash at local stores that have a PayPoint facility. To do this you will need to ask school for a payment card using this form.  We will arrange for a card to be made (which can take up to ten working days). To make a payment, take the card to a local PayPoint store and pay using cash. You will receive a receipt from the store.

School will provide the first card for free but all replacement cards will be charged at £5.00.

Local stores that have the PayPoint facility:

  • Shehri Brothers News, 207 Seaview Road
  • Asda Superstore, Seaview Road
  • Rake Lane News, 126 Rake Lane
  • McColls, 91-93 Belvidere Road
  • The Local Zone, 123-125 Mount Road
