School Meals

A healthy two course meal is cooked on site every day by our cook, Mrs Kayleigh Nicholson, who works for North Yorkshire County Caterers.

Lunch is served in the Village Hall at 12:00 noon. This is seen as an important social occasion in the school day. The children sit in small ‘family’ groups to eat, with the oldest children taking responsibility for the care of the others on their tables. At least one lunch time supervisor with additional staff also looks after the children both at meal times and during lunch break.

Payment may be made weekly (money brought in on Mondays in a separate, marked envelope please) or half termly, by cheque made out to Cracoe & Rylstone Primary School. Meals should be paid for prior to their consumption.

Information about free school meals can be obtained via school or direct from: The Welfare Team, CYPS tel: 01609 533405 email: or via the North Yorkshire county website:

All children are provided with fruit for morning break, this is provided under the Government ‘Fruit for Schools’ scheme with additional funding being added from school funds.
