School Lunches


School meals are provided by Chartwells. The school provides free school meals for pupils whose families meet the eligibility criteria. For further information please follow the link below.


Payment is in advance, preferably half-termly, but can be paid weekly on a Monday if more convenient.  From 11th April 2016 the cost of school lunches will be £11 per week (£2.20 per day).  Payment is made via School Gateway.  Please ensure your child's account is in credit if they wish to have lunch.


We operate a pre-ordering system whereby the children choose what they want for lunch at morning registration.  We would be grateful if parents could discuss the menu options with their child beforehand so the pupil is clear about what they are choosing.


Please note that the universal free school meals programme does not apply to children at the Juniors.
