School Lunches and sample menus

Our school kitchen serves school meals every day at the cost of £2.40.

If having school lunches, all pupils must book weekly in advance via ParentPay. Pupils in Reception and Years 1 & 2, plus children entitled to income-related Free School Meals have their meals funded by the Government. Nursery pupils and those in Years 3-6 are subject to the £2.40 per day (£12 per week) charge.

September-October 2020

In order to safely manage the lunchtime provision, we have temporary arrangements in place for the first half term of the 2020-2021 academic year.  These will be reviewed and parents will be informed of the provision for November-December before the October half term. All meals need to be booked on ParentPay in advance in weekly blocks and paid in advance where this applies.

Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 – Hot school dinners will be available to be booked on ParentPay.  Meals for pupils in Reception to Year 2 are currently funded by the government but will still need to be booked on our ParentPay system.  Nursery meals are chargeable at £2.40 per day.

Years 3 to 6 – Cold school packed lunches will be available to book and pay for online in weekly blocks at a cost of £12. (Children entitled to income-related Free School Meals do not pay for lunches but they do still need to be booked online).  There will be no hot meal option at this time.

Packed Lunches from Home

You may choose to provide your child with a packed lunch.

As a school, we want to promote healthy eating choices for all our children and we have produced this guidance with the aim of helping and supporting parents and children to make those healthy choices when bringing a packed lunch from home. It was written with help from our School Council. 

We would ask that all families ensure they follow the guidance given but particularly in ensuring packed lunches do not contain nuts or sweets and that children only bring one treat item. Our lunchtime staff will let you know, via a note in the lunch box, if there are any foods that shouldn’t be there.
