School Meals

School Meals


The cost of a school dinner is £2.30 per day, £11.50 per week (from 1st May 2019). 


All payments should be made in advance either for the week or half term. Meal charges are added to ParentMail half termly and you may part pay (eg £11.50 weekly) as long as the balance is paid before the last week of the half term.


If you think your child’s account may have credit or a debit from last term, please check with the office before you make a payment. Children should stay on the same meal option per term and not change mid-week or term unless there are exceptional circumstances.


If you think your child may be entitled to free school meals, please enquire at the office. Application to the local authority is very quick and simple and the school will receive vital additional funding.

All children in KS1 (Reception to Year 2) are entitled to a free school meal every day.
