At Hatch Warren Infant School, we believe that the best option for children at lunchtime is to have the hot school dinner, provided through our partnership with HC3S. We expect that parents of children in Key Stage 1 will take up the option of the Universal Infant Free School Meal. This is because we believe that the hot school dinner option is much better for the children’s learning and health. We recognise the evidence that states:
HC3S provide all the nutrients that children require through the week. They produce a menu which has a three-weekly cycle and is available for parents to view.
Free School Meal Eligibility Check
Hampshire County Council Catering Services (HC3S) has an online service so parents can check their eligibility for free school meals themselves.
Please note that the criteria for free school meals is the same, regardless of method of checking eligibility, but for the online service all you need to do is enter your name, national insurance number or asylum number, your address and your child's details. Press 'submit' and you will find out if you are eligible.
If your result comes back 'found', this means your child is eligible for free school meals and the system automatically tells the school.
