School meals are available for all full-time pupils and represent excellent value.
Provision is also made for children whose parents wish them to eat a packed lunch brought from home. We do ask parents to follow the guidance regarding healthy packed lunches in the guidance below.
Price of School Meals 2016-2017
Per meal £2.40
School meals must be paid for in advance and can be paid for on a weekly, half termly or termly basis. Our preferred method of payment is always via Schoolgateway. It is also possible to pay by cash or cheque (payable to Hertfordshire Catering Limited).
Those parents who feel they may be eligible for free school meals due to financial circumstances should make application on-line. Please click here to apply.
All children in Reception class, Year 1 and Year 2 have automatic entitlement to meals free of charge. However if you are entitled to free school meals for financial reasons we ask you to make the application as this could help our school to get extra money to help pupils.
Wednesday Roast Days & Friday Favourites
Every Wednesday the kitchen offers a roast dinner and on a Friday it is a choice of their favourite food. It is possible to select a meal pattern to include school meals on these days and provide a packed lunch from home on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays if preferred.
Please inform the school office if your child wishes to change their school meal pattern.
Children in KS1 have a snack at morning break provided by the school. This consists of seasonal fruit or vegetables, e.g. an apple, satsuma, carrot.
For KS2 children we have a Breaktime Cafe, where children can order a variety of healthy snacks at morning break, e.g. toast, teacake, milkshake. We operate a 'ticket' system for Breaktime Café. Books of 10 tickets are available at a cost of £4. Parents should send payment in a sealed envelope, clearly marked with the child's name and 'Breaktime Café'. Tickets will then be sent home with their child.
