At Larks Hill we encourage our children to adopt a healthy lifestyle and we are proud to be accredited as a Healthy School. We promote the health and well-being of pupils and staff through a well planned, taught curriculum and through our Healthy Eating Policy.

We encourage children to bring water into the classroom to rehydrate and we run weekly cooking lessons for groups of children to help them learn about how to create their own healthy meals.

Free School Meals

Free school meals are available to some children according to family income.

To find out if your child qualifies for free school meals or for further help, you can:

Visit the Wakefield Free School Meals Website to download an application form and leaflet

Contact Wakefield Family Services on 01924 305061

Call the HMRC Tax Credit Helpline on 0845 300 3900

Ask the school office for further advice or send us an email to admin@larkshill.patrust.org.uk

If you are entitled to register for free school meals please do so, even if your child has a packed lunch, as school receives extra funding through the Pupil Premium. Please note, it is your responsibility to renew your child’s entitlement as needed.

Universal Infant Free School Meals are available for all children in Reception, Year One and Year Two. All other pupils can purchase school meals for £10 per week, paid in advance at the start of the week.
