School Meals

We kindly ask that school meals are paid for through the Parent Pay system.

School Dinners are provided free of charge for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.

For children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 the charge will be £2.68 each day.

Procedure For Special Diets

If you feel that your child has a dietary requirement that we need to be made aware of, please visit your GP and/or child’s Paediatric Dietician and request a letter stating the needs of the diet. The dietary information supplied needs to be as comprehensive as possible, please.
The details of the pupil:

  • Name
  • DOB
  • Type of diet required
  • Name of the clinic, hospital requesting the diet

Please note, that this letter is sent to Essential Catering Services, who are responsible for ordering and processing the correct food.

During staff briefings, we share updated medical information about children, ensuring all staff are made aware of the needs of every child.

If you would like to take a look, a copy of our school lunch menu and break time menu can be found under Virtual Office.
