School meals, lunchtimes and snacks.
Children can buy school meals which are freshly cooked in our school kitchen and they can order a choice of meals each day.
Dinner money is currently £2.10 per day and is payable in advance. Dinner money can be paid by Direct Debit to Dolce or by cash, this must be paid every Monday in a sealed envelope clearly marked with your child’s name and ask your child to give this to the class teacher. Alternatively, you can pay for the half or full term in advance by visiting our office at the entrance to the school. All payment preferably needs to be cash only; cheques will only be accepted when supported by a cheque guarantee card. Over 70% of our parents now pay for their school meals by Direct Debit. It’s really quick to sign up online, and you can even choose what time of the month you would like to pay. Click here to get started.
If your child prefers a packed lunch, then this should be stored in a lunch box clearly marked with your child’s name. You can switch between a cooked school meal and a packed lunch by giving a week’s notice to the school office.
Water is vital to keep the brain healthy! We have six water dispensers around the school and we encourage children to bring transparent, plastic bottles with sports (non leak) caps from home clearly marked with their name. We also offer bottles for sale at the school office. Note that during lesson times only water is permitted – children are not permitted juices, cordials or other beverages.
Children can bring in a healthy mid-morning snack such as a cereal bar or piece of fruit. Crisps, sweets, cakes and biscuits are not permitted. Please ensure that cereal bars are not the chocolate covered variety as this is part of our Healthy School status.
