All menus are planned to comply with the Government's nutritional standards.

The cost of a school dinner is £2.10 per meal, which is £10.50 per week or if you want to pay monthly £42.00.  Payment should be made online, or dinner money for the week ahead can be brought into school in an envelope clearly marked with the words “Dinner Money” and your child's name, class, amount of money and date written on the front of the envelope.  If you need some envelopes, please ask at the office.  Please make sure school dinner money is brought to school on a Monday.

As happens currently, you and your child will be able to choose the meals they want to order from the choice of  the Main Menu - a Red or Green option, OR a Cold Lunch menu OR a jacket Potato Menu,  Your child can still bring in a packed lunch if they don’t like any of the items of the menus!
