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

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.
