Lunch Menus

Our school meals are prepared on site in our modern school kitchen.

The current cost of a school meal is £2.45 per day.

We are currently only accepting online payments, if you require an online access code to enable you to pay online on ParentPay please email 

Meals can be paid for daily, weekly or termly.  Please ensure you pay on the day or in advance.

All children in Foundation Stage 2 and Key Stage 1 receive a school meal 'free of charge' through the government Universal Infant Free School Meal Scheme. If you believe that you are entitled to free school meals and your child receives Government-funded meals, please still apply for the funding as this will support other areas of your child's education (see below).

Children who do not want to have a school meal can bring a packed lunch. This should be sent in a sandwich box or container clearly named so they can be stored on special trolleys in school.

Due to the new guidelines on food allergies, it is important to inform you and your children of the foods and the allergens which they contain. We will inform children through a display showing them the allergens contained in that week’s food.

For you, the parents, we have created a guide for your information and hope that this will help you and your children make an informed decision.

Should your child be allergic to any of the items listed below then please contact the office who will in turn pass on the details to the kitchen.
