Paying for School Meals
School meals must be paid for using our online Parent Pay system.
Children may bring a packed lunch which are eaten in the main hall. Packed lunches should be in a secure named container. No sweets are allowed – instead, we encourage lots of fruit or vegetables. Water is available on all tables for children who choose a packed lunch. However, your child can bring their own drink in a non-breakable container – please avoid fizzy drinks.
