School Meals

The Chellington Federation is supported by a catering company 'Caterlink' to provide our school lunches. We buy this service from Bedford Borough Council.

The school meals are free to all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 through the Government 'Universal Infant Free School Meals' initiative which began in September 2014.

Children in Nursery, Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 are invited to have school lunches, at a cost of £2.10 per day for Nursery and Years 3 and 4 and £2.20 per day for Years 5 and 6.  (Free to children of parents who qualify for Free School Meals by meeting set criteria.)

We encourage all parents to look at the 'Free School Meals' criteria to see if they may qualify. If they do, we are able to receive 'Pupil Premium' funding for each child to provide intervention, support and extra experiences with which to increase the amount of academic progress children make.

Please click on the following link to the application form detailing the criteria for Free School Meals or alternatively speak to the school office.
