School Meals

The universal infant free school scheme entitles any child in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to a free hot meal in the middle of the day.

The cost of a school meal for children in Years 3-6  is £2.50 per day. 

Our meals are provided by Dolce. Parents log into their 'SchoolGrid' account and choose the meals for their children. This can be done weekly, monthly or half termly. Payment is taken for these meals at the same time.  

If your child has a special dietary requirement (such as an intolerance or religious grounds) this will be put on your child’s details when you make their school meal account. The meals provided will then conform to the dietary restrictions.

SchoolGrid Guide

Our children are served by our dedicated catering team, led by Mrs Fowler. All meals are designed to be highly nutritious and children are supported and encouraged, to be as independent as possible, by collecting cutlery along with their meal and to clear away after eating. 

The children may also bring a packed lunch from home if this is preferred to a hot school meal.
