School Meals

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free two course school lunch.

Children in Year 3 and above pay £2.50 per meal, unless they are entitled to free school meals.

First thing in the morning, our children choose which main course they would like for their lunch and then their order is given to our Cook. The children wear a coloured band which corresponds to their choice of meal, which they hand over in the dinner hall, in exchange for their lunch! 

Dinner money is paid online via our ParentPay website, or a card can be provided which enables you to pay for school meals at any local shop with a PayPoint (such as the Co-op on Badgeney Road, Premier corner shop on St Peter’s Road or any of the local One-Stop Shops). It is essential that all school meals are paid for in advance.

Packed Lunches

Some children prefer to bring a packed lunch which should be in a suitable named container. Canned drinks, glass containers and hot drinks in flasks are not allowed. Jugs of water are provided, but children should bring their own mug.

A piece of fruit is provided as a mid-morning snack for all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. We encourage the children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 to bring a piece of fruit as well if they wish. We also encourage children to bring a named bottle of water to school every day.
