School Meals

Powys Catering provide hot daily meals and aim to encourage healthy eating. Menus are chosen with this aim in mind and known harmful additives are avoided. A variety of meal options are available, including traditional meals and salads. (Sample menus are available from the kitchen, online at the Powys Catering website or click the link below). Children are welcome to bring a packed lunch from home, if preferred. However, we request that you provide a balanced, healthy lunch. We do not allow fizzy drinks or highly coloured squash drinks. Glass bottles or cans are not permitted. All children eat their lunches in the school hall under the supervision of the Midday Supervisors. Payment for meals is through the cashless system, ParentPay. 


Currently, at Clyro Church in Wales Primary School, pupils from Reception to Year 3 are now entitled to free cooked meal, as decided by the Welsh Government. This means that your child can order a cooked lunch from our school kitchen, free of charge. ​

In addition, Free School Meals (FSM) are available to children where the family income falls within the required scale. If you are in receipt of Income Support, Job Seeker’s Allowance (income based) or Child Tax Credit (but not entitled to Working Tax Credit) your child may be eligible for free school meals. Parents may apply online on Powys County Council’s website. All enquiries are handled confidentially and we would encourage parents to register, even if they would prefer not to take the meals, as this will result in increased funding into our school budget. ​
