School Dinners

Parents/carers can choose from two options; school dinners or a packed lunch sent from home. If you wish to change your child’s meal pattern you must complete the ‘Changing Your Child’s Meal Option’ form and return it to the school office as teachers are unable to change meals options during morning registration. Any pre-booked school meals will be charged for.

School meals are cooked on the premises and our chef ensures that all meals are healthy and tasty, in line with government guidelines. Meals must be paid for in advance and online using SIMS Agora following the instructions on our payments page, the latest school meal prices are displayed below. If your child is in reception, year 1 or year 2 school meals will be funded by the government. Parents/carers are able to view their dinner money balances through our SIMS Agora system.

If you prefer that your child has a packed lunch sent from home, please remember that sweets, chocolate and sugary drinks should not be included and only water should be given. We are a ‘Healthy Eating School’ and packed lunches should reflect this.  Please download our pack lunch ideas sheet below.




  • School dinner per day: £2.10
  • School dinners per week: £10.50

However, if your combined annual household income is below £16,190, your child may qualify for ‘pupil premium’. As well as free school meals, pupil premium provides extra funding of up to £1,350 to your child’s school. This funding allows us to support your child’s education through extra tuition, teaching staff and free enrichment club activities each term. We kindly ask that all parents/carers who may be entitled apply for pupil premium online to help boost school funds.
