School meals are a wonderful way to provide children with a nutritious, healthy, warm meal every day they are at school. These early learning experiences help children to developing positive eating habits which will have a significant impact when they are required to make their own food choices in secondary school.
Children who have a nutritionally balanced meal will be able to concentrate better during afternoon lessons. Also the act of children sitting down and eating lunch with their peers helps them develop social and interpersonal skills. Our catering provider is Robertson’s Catering and they ensure that we have a varied, well balance menu with plenty of choice.
We have a pre-order school dinner system which operates on a three week cycle and the menus are changed twice a year.
School meals are free to all children in Reception Class, Year 1 and Year 2 (key stage 1) and £13.40 per week (£2.68 per day) for children in Years 3-6.
Meals are to be paid for via our cashless system ParentPay. You can choose how many meals to pay for, whether it be weekly, monthly, half termly or whatever you prefer. Meals must be paid for in advance and school will automatically receive notification of your payment by email.
If your child would like to change to / from school meals, one weeks’ notice is required.
