School dinners for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children are free of charge. Our school meals are excellent, current cost for Key Stage 2 pupils (Y3, Y4, Y5 & Y6) is £2.05 per day. (increased from 1 September 2018)
We ask that dinner money is brought in on a Monday morning in a sealed envelope with the child’s name and amount of money clearly written on the envelope.
We operate a pre-ordering system of school meals. The main advantages of pre-ordering are that children will always receive their first choice main meal regardless of their position in the queue and also that parents will know which main course their child will be having that day.
Parents will be consulted at the start of any change of menu provided which will be usually twice a year, otherwise the same menu will rotate every three weeks and the meals ordered will remain the same throughout the term.
Healthy packed lunches may be brought in a lunch box. We would, however, ask you to do your best to encourage your children to take up school lunches to promote a healthy diet. Any drinks should be in plastic bottles not cans.
Please try to ensure that packed lunches comprise mainly of savoury foods and some fresh fruit. Sweet foods should be limited to only one biscuit/cake. Sweets should never be in a packed lunch. These will be sent back home uneaten.
If your child wishes to change from school dinner to packed lunches, or packed lunches to school dinners we require two weeks’ notice.
