School Meals

 

School Dinner Menu Summer 2017

Payments

 

The current cost of dinners is £1.90 per day (£9.50 per week).  Payments must be made in advance by using ParentPay.

 

Absences/Lateness

 

A careful control of children’s absences is carried out every day so that we can inform the kitchen of the exact number of dinners required, limiting the wastage of food.  It is important therefore that, if your child is not in school in the morning but will be arriving in time for lunch, the office is informed before 9.30am so that a meal can be ordered for him/her.  If the office is not informed, we cannot guarantee a school meal.

 

Arrears

 

Contacting parents for non-payment of school dinners puts enormous administrative burden on the school.  If payment for school meals taken has not been received after one week, you will be asked to provide your child with a packed lunch until full payment has been received

 

Universal Free School Meals

 

Currently all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive a free school meal regardless of their family circumstances.
