Hot School Meals – you can order a hot meal through Chartwells who provide a healthy lunch for children to have a hot meal instead of sandwiches at school. Please use the following link on how to order and also to see their menus https://westsussex.mealselector.co.uk/. If you feel or you are unsure if you are entitled to a free school meal for your child, please come into the school office for an application form, or download it from the school website on the link under ‘forms’.
Did you know … just registering your child for Free School Meals means that the school gets extra money?

The Government is giving money to schools to help children from lower income families do their very best. This funding is called a ‘Pupil Premium’.
For every child registered at The Laurels Primary School will receive £1,320 from central Government to fund valuable extra support.
Please register as soon as possible to make sure your child and others in their class don’t miss out.
No one will know you have registered and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.

Please remember when your child reaches Year 3, 4, 5 or 6 , if you wish for your child to carry on having hot school meals you will need to order them directly from Chartwells on their website https://westsussex.mealselector.co.uk or by calling them direct on 01243 836130 or 0845 603 7998. Meals need to be ordered 2 weeks in advance and are currently priced at £2.30 each, with a small increase to £2.35 from September 2018. If your child is currently in receipt of free school meals through pupil premium eligibility, these will automatically continue. If you do not wish to pay for a hot school meal please remember to send your child in with a packed lunch including a drink (no nut based products in lunch boxes – thank you).
We are pleased to let you know that here at The Laurels Primary we will offer free milk to all children under 5 and also to any child who is on free school meals.
If your child is not over 5 and not entitled to free school meals you are able to, as a parent, buy milk for your child.
