School Meals

At Roecroft we encourage Healthy Eating and now hold the Enhanced Healthy Schools Status.

SchoolGrid - School Meal Ordering

From January 2021 our school meals will be provided by Dolce. They use an app called SchoolGrid which enables parents to pre-order school meals in advance. 

All school meals must be ordered via SchoolGrid, whether Free School Meals, Universal Free School Meals or Paid School Meals so please ensure your account is set up in advance as you will be unable to order without an account set up.

Link to SchoolGrid App: SchoolGrid

Parents/carers can pre-order up to 8:50am each morning. After this point, and until 9:30am, orders can be placed in the classroom.

If your child is going to be late in to school, please ensure you place their school meal order via SchoolGrid before 8:50am or alternatively contact the school office with their meal choice before 9:30am, if you do not place an order before 9:30am you will need to provide a packed lunch from home.

Free school Meals

Every year schools are in a position to receive additional funding called the Pupil Premium Grant. The school carefully uses this funding to provide additional support to pupils within the school day. It is also used to help families towards the cost of things such as tuition, trips and breakfast clubs and means pupils can continue to receive free school meals in Years 3 and 4.

ALL children in Reception Yr1 and Yr2 automatically qualify for Universal Free School Meals but they do not automatically qualify for this additional funding. 

A child may be eligible for this grant where their family is in receipt of one of the following: 

As is common in most schools, a number of parents whose children attend fail to claim FSM funding. Even if your child currently has a packed lunch, or is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 you should still apply as you may be offered help with the cost of Uniform, School Trips and Clubs.  Please check on Free School Meals (FSM) to see if you qualify and follow the instructions below to claim.

You can apply by:
