School dinners currently cost £2.60 for a KS2 meal or £2.10 for a nursery meal and the money is payable through MCAS. Annual price increases for school dinners are applicable from September of each year. When a child is absent during the week, the dinner money will be carried forward as a credit. All Reception and KS1 children receive a free school meal. We cater for any food allergies and offer a vegetarian menu.
We also serve a vegetarian option and jacket potatoes with tuna, cheese or baked beans every day. We also serve baguettes at least once a week on a Wednesday and offer packed lunches for most school visits.
Packed lunches may be brought and eaten in school. Drinks need to be brought in unbreakable containers. Alternatively, water can be provided to drink with meals. At break time all of the KS1 children are provided with fruit. We have a number of children in school with nut allergies, so request that nuts are not sent to school please.
Children from families receiving benefits may qualify for free school meals. If you think you are entitled to free school meals please contact the school office and we will help you to apply.
