School Dinners

Our current lunch menus can be viewed below.

A school dinner costs £2.40.

Changes to dinner arrangements need to be given two weeks in advance, in person, to the Office.

Dinner money should be paid on a Monday morning. This can be paid either weekly, monthly or even termly. We accept cash and cheques only as we currently do not have facilities for card payments.

We can not extend credit and ask anyone who has outstanding dinner money to come and speak to us regarding repayment of this debt. We will follow our Debt Policy procedures and referring to Lovett's Solicitors for collection of outstanding monies if necessary.

Universal Free School Meals

Every pupil in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are now eligible for free school meals.

The Government has decided that schools must offer a healthy school lunch to all infant pupils in England from September this year. This is a vital and important change that will significantly improve children's health and their attainment.

For more information on this scheme, visit www.schoolfoodplan.com

We ask that all parents fill in the school meals registration form. This is important so that we can continue to register pupils who attract pupil premium, which is worth £1,300 a year per pupil for our school.

You can download the registration form for free school meals and information below.
