School Dinners

Each day, children at Peartree Primary School can choose a school dinner or a home packed lunch. The class teacher will take your child's choice each morning during registration.

School lunches need to be paid for in advance via School Gateway, either through their website or the app. If payment is not made in advance, then a home packed lunch needs to be provided.

Free School Meals

Your child may qualify for a free meal if you receive any of the following:

  • Income Support

  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance

  • Income-related Employment Support Allowance

  • Child Tax Credit (providing you're not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)

  • Pension Credit (Guarantee Credit)

  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
