School Dinners

Whole School Meals is an independent dinner contractor that provide our school with cooked meals daily.

The cost of a school dinner is £2.30 daily and any money should be forwarded to the school kitchen on a Monday in advance, alternatively payments can be made online via the Whole School Meal website. This can be sent into school in a sealed, labelled named envelope.

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are now entitled to a hot meal daily from September 2014.

(Although this provision has been called Universal Free School meals this is not to be confused with our Pupil Premium Free School Meals which is a separate funding.)

Their website also provides information about current menus, news and events.
