Parents Guide to Lunches
- Every Monday your child should tell their teacher if they are having school dinners or a packed lunch for the week. This choice must be kept for the full week. Choices can change from week to week only
- If your child has been ill on a Monday, please tell the office if they are having school dinners or a packed lunch for the rest of the week when they return
- If your child is late on a Monday please inform the office if they are having school dinners or a packed lunch when you sign them in as late at the office
- Please click the link at the bottom of the page to see the school dinner menu. Please note that this may vary slightly due to circumstances beyond our control
- School dinners are charged at £2.34 per day or £11.70 for the week. Parents can pay through Parent Pay. Please ask at the office if you need help
- Remember you need to give your child’s full name and class so it can be recorded correctly by the office staff
