School Meals

The kitchen are serving meals from
week 1 in the week - May 11th to May 15th

Catering Academy provide us with fantastic quality school dinners at the price of £2 per day. Why not give them a try?

They are really tasty and great value for money. Menus are varied with a vegetarian option every day. They operate a three week menu system. Copies of the menus are available from the school office.

If you do want to try them please let the office know, we only need a weeks notice whenever a child wishes to change their lunchtime arrangements.​ Dinner money is collected for the forthcoming week every Monday morning.

And now under the Universal infant free school meal scheme, all the children in Reception, Y1 and Y2 are entitled to free school meals, irrespective of any benefits you may or may not be claiming.

Free school meals are a statutory benefit. The Government does not allow us to recognise any other benefit other than those mentioned below. If you are not sure, please get in touch with the Admissions and Benefits team using the contact information at the bottom of the page.

Free school meals are available to children of families who are in receipt of:

Children who receive Income Support or Income Based Job Seekers Allowance in their own right are also entitled to receive Free School Meals.
