School Meals

"What's for lunch?"

We are very proud of the meals served each day at school.

Please speak to Admin staff about on-line payments and the new Meal Manager system - This allows you, and your child, to choose a main meal in advance

Children in infant classes are entitled to a free school meal.

Children are welcome to bring a packed lunch each day, if they prefer.

School meals cost £2.68 per day - Meals should be paid for in advance - either weekly or half-termly as follows:

Can we please remind parents:

Payment is online using the School Gateway - THIS IS OUR PREFERRED METHOD as we are now a ‘cashless office’. The school office staff can print a Pay Point voucher for you to use at a local participating retailer, if you would like to pay using cash.





 We ask parents to ensure that packed lunches brought from home contain healthy foods, in keeping with our Healthy Schools ethos .
