Our catering supplier at Elworth CE is Taylor Shaw who supply nutritious meals and snacks for pupils, staff and sometimes even parents!  We  work with Taylor Shaw to continually improve the service and get the children more involved in making their lunch and snack time even better.

Meals still cost only £2.20 each and snacks for morning break range from 25p - 50p. All KS1 pupils are entitled to a free school meal.  We operate a cashless till where parents pay funds into the child’s account (via online payments or cash/cheque in a suitably marked envelope in the red/yellow cash box at reception) which should always be in credit. The pupils order their lunch from the menu at morning registration - this is to ensure they have their choice rather than what is left – and the cost is deducted at the point of service. Online payments can be made by registering at , cheques for meals/snacks should be made payable to Cheshire East BC with Elworth CE marked on the back please.  Each week parents receive a statement by email showing what their child/ren have munched their way through.

If you get any of the following support payments your child may be entitled to receive free school meals (KS2)/pupil premium (KS2 & KS1):

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit


If you believe you may be eligible for free school meals/pupil premium please contact the Business Manager to discuss how we can help with this - even if your child recieves a free meal under the KS1 programme.  Although not an entitlement, Elworth CE chooses to further assist pupils in receipt of pupil premium by offering a choice of snack and drink free of charge.  Other benefits may be available such as discounts on trips and other subsidies.
