School Meals

School meals are cooked on the premises.  These are planned by ISS catering and provide each child with a balanced diet. They work on a 2-week rolling menu plan.

Students in Early Years (Reception – Year 2) have Universal Free School Meals. School meals must be paid for, for students in Nursery and from Year 3 – Year 14.

School dinner costs for 2020 – 2021 are as follows:

– £2.70 a day (£13.50 per week) across the whole school

Payments can be made on a weekly, monthly or termly basis through the online payments system, SIMs Pay. A barcode can also be requested. Minimum payment of £15.00 is required.

As from September 2014 the government announced that every child in reception, year 1 and year 2 is entitled to have a free school meal.

If you are on Income Support your child will be entitled to free school meals.  The form can be found below: You will need to show us your Income Support book as proof. Once completed, please submit to the main office.

Proving Your Eligibility

FSM_Application_Form

If you prefer to send your child with a packed lunch we ask that lunch should be in a secure container, clearly marked with the pupil’s name.  Unfortunately, we are unable to reheat/cook food from home.

We also have a no nuts rule in school, this includes chocolate spreads and other sweet items.

Drinks should be in a plastic container with a secure lid.

– No glass bottles or tins
– No fizzy drinks or nuts

In warm weather we advise you include a freezer pack in the sandwich box to keep the food cool.
