Children have the option of a school meal or bringing a packed lunch from home.
Hot school lunches are provided by Metro Catering Services at a cost of £2.30 per day. Payment for School Meals for KS2 children can be paid weekly via the school office or online via our SIMS AGORA Payments system ( please ask the school office for details ). Children in KS1 are entitled to a free school meal. We need 1 week’s notice in writing for any children wishing to change lunchtime arrangements.
Special meals are in place at certain times of the year eg St George’s Day and the change to the menu will be sent home.
Children can bring a packed lunch to school. We do ask that you do not send cans or glass bottles in their lunch boxes.
