Parents can choose to provide their child with a healthy packed lunch or pay for a school dinner (current cost £2.10 per day). A three week menu choice is available. Meals must be paid for in advance as we are not able to offer credit as food must be ordered in advance. Where parents fail to provide their child with an appropriate meal (e.g. packed lunch or paid for school meal) this may result in a referral to Social Care.

Infant children dinners 

A hot lunch will be provided free by the government from September 2014, for all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, whose parents choose this option.
