Food in School
Lunchtime is staggered with Reception children having their lunch at 12:00 and then lunch break until 1:00. The infant classes have lunch at 12:10 and finish their lunch break at 1:10. The junior classes start their lunch at 12:15 and have until 1:10 for their lunch break.
Children may have a school meal or packed lunch on a daily basis.
Under the current government scheme, all children in years R – 2 are entitled to free school meals. Registers are taken daily so children may have as few or as many school meals within a week as they choose. The charge for meals for children in year 3 – 6 is currently £2.50 per day and payment must be made in advance of meals being taken.
Payment is acceptable by credit/debit card via our online payment system, School Comms. Please ask at the office if you haven't registered with School Comms using the School Gateway app. Alternatively, please navigate to the online payment system tab and view the download instructions for the School Gateway app.
You will be able to check the balance of your child’s account on School Comms or by request at the school office. Please check the account regularly to keep the account in credit.
