School meals meet current Government guidelines. We operate a cafeteria system of dining, each class going into the hall in turn, and there is a choice of meal every day, including vegetarian and halal. There is also a fresh salad bar. The current price of a school meal is £2.40 per day, including a dessert and a drink, which is excellent value.
Please send your child’s dinner money on Mondays or on the day if your child has an occasional school meal. It is most helpful if you send the dinner money in an envelope, on which is written your child’s name, class and the amount of money enclosed.
If debts are incurred, the school budget has to pay for them. This means that money which should be spent on the children’s education has to be used to pay for debts incurred by parents. The school budget cannot support this debt.
Children will not be provided with a school dinner unless it is paid for, or unless they are entitled to free school meals. Children in families receiving income support benefit are entitled to free school meals. Please apply if you think you may be eligible as this can affect our funding within school. Forms are available from the school office.
We allow children to bring packed lunches to school for their mid-day meal if parents so wish. We ask that only carton drinks or plastic bottles should be part of the packed lunch because of supervision and storage problems and because of the potential dangers of some containers. A drink of water is provided for every child who has a packed lunch and does not bring a drink.
