Meal Changes


Just a reminder to parents that if your child wishes to change their lunchtime arrangement from a packed lunch to a school meal, or vice versa, you must give the School Office AT LEAST one week’s notice.

School Meals cost £9.50 per week, payable each Monday in advance. Arrears are not allowed.

We are proud to hold an Enhanced Healthy School Status, and so we ask that parents support us in upholding this standard by ensuring that Packed Lunches adhere to our policy. No chocolate, fizzy drinks or sweets are allowed at all, and they will be disposed of accordingly.

Thank you for your co-operation.
