Meals are cooked in the kitchen at the nearby St Clements Primary and transported to the Junior School each day. Pupils pay £2.40 per meal weekly in advance – ie. £12.00 per five-day week. Dinner money should be sent to school in a sealed and named envelope that is given to the class teacher on the first day of each week. As meals need to be ordered, children wishing to change from one system to the other should give the Secretary one week’s notice please.
Children may have a school meal for only part of the week but as our meals have to be ordered from St Clements Primary school, we are unable to offer this on an ad-hoc basis. If parents would like children to have a meal on a set one, two, three, or four days every week, for a minimum of a half term at a time, then this can be arranged if you contact the school office. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate changes on a week to week or on a day to day basis.
You can find the school dinner / packed lunch and pasta menus here.
Packed lunches may be brought, but we do ask parents to ensure that the child is provided with an adequate meal and any drink brought is in a sealed, non-breakable container.
Free meals are available to families receiving income support, income-based job seekers allowance or child tax credit where annual income does not exceed £16190, but are not eligible if in receipt of Working Tax Credits. Forms and information are available from the school office or County Hall.
Break time snacks
Children have a morning break at either 10 am or 11.15 amand most parents like to send in a snack for this break. We are a Healthy School so snacks should be: fruit, vegetables, cereal bar, or something similar. No chocolate bars or crisps please and make sure that all snacks are nut free.
