Lister Primary School

School Meals

Our School meals offer a tasty, nutritionally balanced 2 course school dinner for FREE for all primary school children in Reception class and Years 1 & 2 or just £1.80* per day for pupils in years 3-6.

Tasty, nutritious school meals have been provided in the Bradford district for many years. The Universal Infant Free School Meals scheme means these meals are provided for FREE to all primary school children in Reception class and Years 1 & 2. There are no forms to fill in or other eligibility criteria. So if your child is in one of these year groups, you can simply send them to school to enjoy a delicious free lunch each day. If you would be eligible for free school meals, it’s a good idea to still register as school will benefit from extra funding.
