School Meals

From 1 April 2017 school meals will cost £2.40 per day and the choice of meals will rise from 3 to 4 to include a new jacket potato option.  Meals are cooked on the premises and our kitchen offers a variety of healthy dishes each day from hot meals to school packed lunches. The system is totally flexible with children able to choose any number of meals per week.

School meals must be paid for in advance. If your child has insufficient funds, they may be refused a school meal.  In this instance we will contact you and ask you to provide a home packed lunch. Payment can only be made via debit/credit card on the School Gateway.

Home packed lunch

Parents choosing to provide their own packed lunch are requested to supply a balanced meal. This may consist of sandwiches, raw vegetables, yoghurt, and fruit.  No sweets, nuts or fizzy drinks please. Drinks should come in a carton or plastic bottle. Drinking water is available and children are encouraged to drink regularly throughout the day.

Free School Meals

A child may be entitled to a free meal if the parents are receiving income support. If you think you might be eligible, please visit www.hertsdirect.org and search for Free School Meals. Alternatively you can contact the school office.

Food allergies or intolerances

If your child has any food related allergies or intolerances, you must inform the school office.

We are a nut free school.
