Mount Pleasant Primary School


School Meals

Children in Foundation Stage (Reception) and Key Stage 1 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals. Children in Key Stage 2 may bring a packed lunch or have a school meal. The current price for school meals is £2.20, payable to the office in advance on Monday mornings. We ask you to put the dinner money in a named envelope to avoid loss of confusion. Correct change is greatly appreciated. 


If you think you may be eligible for free school meals you can obtain a form from the Education Office in Accrington or speak to the school office. 


If you wish to send your child to school with a packed lunch, we ask that you send drinks (not fizzy) in sealed containers, no glass bottles or cans, we also do not allow soup. Children having a school lunch are provided with a drink and should therefore not bring drinks for lunchtime.
