SCHOOL MEALS

Since September 2014 we have been able to offer school meals cooked on site, with a termly menu to suit the taste buds of our children. We offer a wide range of meal options, which allows our children to experience a variety of dishes that may be new to them, as well as some of their favourites.

Packed Lunches

With our school meal menu we do try to encourage our children to eat vegetables, salads, fruit and to drink lots of water with their meal. As well as hot school meals, we also provide a packed lunch option which includes a sandwich of your child's choice, reduced salt packet of crisps, a bowl of salad and desert of the day.

When children bring packed lunches into school from home, we ask if parents could not include sweets, nuts or any food products with traces of nuts, chocolate or any fizzy drinks in their lunch boxes. We suggest a sandwich, reduced salt crisps, yoghurt, a piece of fruit with their filled water bottles or some fruit juice.

Under no circumstances are food products with NUTS or traces of nuts allowed on the school premises. We have children who are highly allergic to nuts and we do not want to put them at risk.


School Meal Price

The price of a school meal is £2.30 per day or £11.50 a week. If you pay for your child's school meals, below you find a link where you can create an account with SIMS Pay. Whilst creating an account you will asked for a unique activation code for your child and that code can be obtained on request from the school office. NB: Activation codes should be obtained before creating an account.

Can you also complete the form as clearly as possible, so that your child's choices are inputted correctly. We suggest that you keep a copy of your child's meal choices for your own records.

Free School Meals and Universal School Meal Eligibility

If you are not sure whether your child is entitled to Free School meals and you would like to know whether your child is eligible, you can apply by using the link below.
