School Meals

In April 2022, we launched a new catering service partnering with Cucina. Cucina has significant experience delivering catering services to schools, including several schools in the Richmond borough.  

Mandatory provision – Primary, Year 7 and Year 8 

Part of our unique community feel at St Richard Reynolds is that all our students in the primary school, year 7 and 8 eat a hot lunch together every day.  The menu is varied and always includes multiple options, including vegetarian with food allergies and intolerances catered for.  Studies show that children and young people who eat a hot meal at lunchtime have improved concentration, enhanced attention and learn important social skills from sitting down and eating together.

The cost of a mandatory school meal is £2.65 per day for the High School.

The Mayor London recently changed provision for Primary Pupils and this means all state funded primary school children in London are now eligible for free school meals. See the letter from the Mayor of London here.

Payments for school meals are made via the Online School Shop, which is accessed via the following links:


Our current menus are included below:

How do I apply to receive support?

Even though all Primary school pupils receive free school meals through the Mayor of London’s initiative, it is important to check your eligibility, as being in receipt of free school meals allows the school to claim additional funding to support your child.

How might a child be eligible for FSM or pupil premium funding?

A child may be eligible to receive the pupil premium grant/free school meals if the parent receives any of the following 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

Children who get any of the above benefits in their own right (i.e. they get benefits payments directly, instead of through a parent or guardian) can also get the pupil premium grant/free school meals.

If you think you are eligible for Free School Meals, please complete the FSM Application form and the Payments team will be able to run an eligibility check for you. If you need to speak to someone regarding your application, please email us at

Please refer to our Pupil Premium strategy for more information.
