School Meals

Our school kitchen produces delicious hot and cold meals daily on site. We encourage all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to have a school meal, which are provided free of charge for these classes.

Whether taking a school meal or bringing in a packed lunch, children sit together with their friends in small groups in our school hall. We also offer an additional smaller, calmer area with a member of staff for those pupils who need a quieter atmosphere.


Paying for School Meals: 

School meals cost £2.40 per day, payable each week on a Monday.  Parents can pay half termly or termly in advance if required by Parentmail.  Any pre payments for meals not taken will be held as a credit.   

Free School Meals:
