School Meals are cooked on the premises, although the children may bring a packed lunch if preferred. We believe that eating together is an important part of the child's social education. Pupils are called into lunch in Year Groups and every child having a school dinner will be ticked off a list as the enter the School Canteen.
If you wish to change to school dinners please fill in a form with at least two weeks’ notice in writing to change. If your child has an appointment that means your child will not be having their school dinner please let us know otherwise you will be charged. Each term you will receive a letter with how much you owe for school dinners and you will need to pay on Scopay. School dinners are paid in advance.
School meals are provided by an external company Twelve 15. For more information about the supplier please click on the following link:-
