Our cooked school meals are provided by Taylor Shaw Catering services. School meals are paid for in advance. The current cost of a school meal is £2.35 per day. If you prefer, half-termly payment is also acceptable. Further details about the school catering service and the most up to date cost of meals, can be found on the school website. Continued failure to make payment when due, will result in your child being unable to have school meals.
Meals are ordered and preparations begun at 9:30am If you are attending a hospital or doctors/dental ap- pointment and expect to be back by lunchtime - please let us know. No refunds can be given for meals if they have not been cancelled by 9:30am.
We do ask for two weeks notice if your child wishes to change to or from school meals for ordering purposes. Please send notification in writing to the school office. Please also notify of any dietary requirements, at this time.
Here are the school menu's from our caterer's Taylor Shaw.
We operate on a 3 week rolling menu and children make their food choices daily.
Packed lunches are taken in the main hall. Lunch boxes should be placed on the trolleys provided in the classroom as school begins. Lunch boxes should be collected after the end of lessons at 3:30pm from the classroom. Please make sure that your child’s lunchbox is clearly named and that drinks are in an unbreakable container or carton and that a spoon is provided for yoghurts etc.
As a ‘Healthy School’ the children have decided that sweets should not be brought to school. Snacks for play times are definitely encouraged, however we would prefer that you encourage your child to bring a piece of fruit rather than a bag of crisps for their break.
