All Infant children are provided with a free school meal.
Once children start Juniors, school meals must be paid for unless you are entitled to income based free school meals. The cost of a school meal is currently £2.40 per day and £12.00 per week.
The school meals are provided by Taylor Shaw and are of an excellent standard and it is recommended that children have a cooked meal at school. Dinners are payable in advance using the Parentmail app that can be downloaded for Apple and Android devices.
Please note that school is no longer able to accept cheques or cash payments
We encourage all children to eat school lunches. However, parents of pupils wishing to have packed lunches for a particular reason are expected to provide their children with a healthy packed lunch. A recent survey showed that only 1% of children’s lunchboxes met nutritional guidelines.
Ideally, a lunchbox should contain a source of starch and protein, some fruit, and a drink. Be creative and think outside the (lunch) box!

Snacks are allowed at play times but fruit or vegetables only please. Snack bars or Fruit bars of any description are not allowed. This is a requirement of the Healthy Schools standard. In the case of Infants, fruit is provided via the Government Fruit Scheme.
