School Meals Payments - Autumn 2020

School Meals - Autumn 2020

We will be offering a full menu again from the start of term. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive a free school meal funded by the government. Children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 are charged at £2.20 per meal unless they are in receipt of benefit-related free school meals. Please see the information below if you believe you are elgible. 

We are currently looking into contact free payment systems and hope to establish this in the near future. In the meantime, please send in a cheque or contact the school office to make a bank transfer payment.

Free School Meals

School Meals - Partial Opening 1st June 2020

We will be providing a limited menu during this period of partial opening. At this time, all meals must be booked in advance. If meals are not booked by 9am on the preceding Thursday a packed lunch must be provided. 

School Meals - Spring 2020

There is no change to the menu from last half term. We return on Week 2 of the menu cycle.

We run a 3 week menu cycle as follows:-

 

Spring Term Week 2 Menu - W/C 24 February and 16 March

Spring Term Week 3 Menu - W/C 2 March and 23 March

Spring Term Week 1 Menu - W/C 9 March and 30 March

School Meals - Spring 2019 Update

Please note that from Tuesday 23rd April 2019, school meal prices have increased to £2.20 per pupil per day and £3.00 per adult - this is still very competitive compared to other schools in the area. 

 

 

We no longer send out paper copies of the menu. Each morning at registration the Class Teacher reads out the menu choices and children make their selection. This has resulted in more children getting their preferred meal than with the old system where children were given option one if we had not received a menu back from them.

 

A school meal is just £2.20 per pupil and £3.00 per adult - this is still competitive compared to other local schools.

 

If you do need a paper copy of the menu please ask at the school office - meals remain payable in advance as per school policy.
