School Dinners

School Dinners

We have held the cost of the school meal at £2.30 for as long as possible, but in light of the rapidly increasing cost of food, electricity and other costs I am reluctantly having to raise the price to £2.50 per day with effect from 5th June 2023. This increase will bring our dinner price in line with what many other schools are already charging for school dinners.

We do ask that you continue to pay weekly, half-termly or termly, in advance via the School Gateway for the meals, whichever of those options suits you best. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will continue to be provided with a government subsidised free school meal every day.

If you think you might qualify for free school meals please visit:  even if your child is currently in YR, Y1 or Y2, as if you do qualify for income related free school meals, we may then be able to help you financially in other ways. Also, your child would then be eligible to free places available on the HAF  (Holiday Activities and Food) programme for children and young people aged four (reception class age) to 16, who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals, further details can be found on the link above.

Thank you for your continued support
