School Meals

Menus are seasonal and follow a 3-week programme offering a wide choice of tasty and nutritious hot and cold food. The emphasis is on seasonal produce with free range and organic ingredients, and meals are prepared and cooked fresh daily in our own school kitchen every day. There are separate menus for Infants, Juniors/Seniors.  The menus are based on the national food standards.  Individual dietary requirements are catered for specific food allergies. All pupils are expected to have a school lunch. A small number of pupils are allowed to have a packed lunch for medical reasons or special educational needs.

The school operates a cashless catering system which is directly linked to Parent Pay therefore the cost is automatically charged to the individual child’s account on a daily basis. Payment can be made online via Parent Pay, a secure online payment system designed specifically for schools. Parents are given a user name and password for an online account which can be accessed 24/7. Parents can also see what their child has chosen.

Reception, year 1 and year 2 receive their meal free of charge as this is funded by the Universal Infant Free School Meal offer.

Free school meals are also available for pupils who meet the criteria. Parents must complete the registration form to ensure they receive a free lunch. It is important to sign up for free school meals, even if your child is in reception, Year 1 or Year 2 so that the school receives pupil premium. Please see attached application form.

Year 3 to year 6 are charged a flat rate of £2.30 daily per lunch.  This includes a main meal, dessert and/or milk and drinking water.

Year 7 to Year 11 are charged based on individually priced items. Please see attached price list.  Prices will be reviewed on a termly basis.

In addition to School lunches, we also provide Breakfast and evening meals as part of our before and after school care service.
