We encourage all children to have a school meal and the weekly menu is on display in the Dining Room. If your child would like to take up this option please inform the school office. The cost of school lunches for the 2019 Summer Term (24 April to 24 July): Nursery - £2.25 and Years 3/4 - £2.50. This is very good value for a freshly cooked nutritional meal. Universal Free School Meals are offered from Reception to Year 2.
Please always ensure that the school office and kitchen are informed of any food allergies. Hertfordshire Catering Ltd cannot guarantee that any meal is nut-free but nuts are never included in the school menu and there are no GM items.
School lunches are invoiced per full term in advance and payments should be made at the start of a term via the SchoolGateway online payment facility.
FREE SCHOOL MEALS
As part of the Government's Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) Scheme, all Infant Pupils (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) are entitled to a free lunchtime meal. It is really important that parents continue to register for benefit related school meals. Every eligible pupil who registers under the entitlement criteria enables our school to receive additional Government funding (Pupil Premium), which can support whole school activities for everyone.
