Payment for School Meals

  • The total charge for the first half of the Autumn Term 2020 is: £75.10
  • The total charge for the second half of the Autumn Term 2020 is: £80.50
  • The total charge for the whole of the Autumn Term 2020 is: £155.60

We encourage parents/carers to use our online cashless system +Pay for weekly, half-termly, or termly payments. We do not accept cash or card payments. Please make sure you write your child’s name and class on the back of your cheque.

When a payment is made your account is topped up and you will receive a summary statement showing your "current balance". £2.30 is deducted from this balance each time your child has a meal. If your child does not have a school meal for any length of time, no money is taken from their account. Any balances in credit at the end of a term are rolled over to the following term/academic year.

If your account goes into arrears, you will be notified and asked for immediate payment of the amount owing and to ensure that your child's account is in credit before any further meals can be taken.

The Lunch System

Pupils can choose what they have for lunch on a daily basis - their class teacher will ask what they are having when taking the register.  The school meal options are:

  • Hot Meal
  • Hot Vegetarian Meal
  • Pasta
  • Jacket Potato with various toppings

If your child brings in a packed lunch from home but decides he/she would like a school meal on any given day, they tell the teacher at registration time when asked for their lunch option; and vice versa for children who usually have a school meal.

Allergies and/or Special Dietary Requirements

Please inform the School Office if your child has a food allergy or special dietary requirement. The caterers will be able to provide alternatives to the main menu as necessary.

School Milk

Semi-skimmed milk is made available to pupils with their lunchtime meal.  If you would like your child to have milk each day, please complete the form in the attached letter.
