School Meals

School meals/Packed Lunches

Lunch is a learning opportunity to gain and practise social and independence skills.  Your child could bring a packed lunch (which should be in a clearly labelled lunchbox) or have a hot school dinner.  

Please do not include any nuts or products containing nuts (e.g. Nutella) in your child’s packed lunch.  


We recommend that your choices from the varied menu are made on Parent Pay in advance (even if you do not have to pay for school meals). 


Cost of school meals 

School meals are free for all children in Foundation Stage 2, Year 1 and Year 2. 

For children in Years 3 - 6 the cost is £2.30 per day (price as at Sept 2020). 

Meals should be paid for on Parent Pay. 


Free school meals 

Please contact the school office if you think your child may be eligible for Free School Meals.  If your child is eligible but is in FS2, Year 1 or Year 2 please still apply as the school will receive a Pupil Premium, which will benefit parents by assisting with the cost of school trips, residentials, swimming and after school clubs.
