Meals

At West Byfleet Junior School, like most schools in Surrey, we use Surrey Commercial Services to provide our school meal service. Cooked meals, including a vegetarian option, are prepared daily in our kitchen and children are offered a choice of main courses and desserts.  Salads and fruit are always available.

Free school meals

Children are entitled to Free School Meals if their parents, carers or guardians receive any of the following:

  • Income support
  • Income based job seekers allowance
  • Income related employment and support allowance
  • Guarantee pension credit
  • Child Tax Credit, but not Working Tax Credit, and an annual income lower than the limit set by the Government
  • Working Tax Credit Run On because you have ceased work or reduced your working hours to less than 16 per week

To find out if your child qualifies for free school meals, please contact Fenella Hames in the School Office.

Packed lunches

Alternatively, children may bring a packed lunch which are eaten in the main hall.  

Packed lunches should be in a secure named container.  No sweets are allowed – instead, we encourage lots of fruit or vegetables.  Water is available on all tables for children who choose a packed lunch.  However, your child can bring their own drink in a non-breakable container – please avoid fizzy drinks.

Milk

A daily small carton of milk can be bought in advance. 

Children who have milk usually drink it just before or after their morning playtime.
