School Meals and Free School Meals

We would ask the parent / carer of any student who is eligible for free school meals to inform the office staff and ensure we have the correct details registered. This would help the school in many ways and enable us to give appropriate support to your child.

Students who are eligible for a free school meal are provided with lunch from City Catering. This consists of a sandwich of a student’s choice, fruit box and a biscuit or cake along with a drink.


Within Merit there is always fruit available and at break all students are given a breakfast of toast or muffins, teacakes or pancakes.

If a student has any specialist dietary requirements or allergies please ensure that you have informed the school office as well including it on the relevant paperwork.
