The children have a choice of a cooked school meal or a packed lunch. School meals are cooked on the premises by City Catering. There is a selection of healthy choices, which includes a vegetarian option. The weekly menu is located inside the school hall and children select their chosen meal each morning. There are photographs available to let the children know what their meal will look like to aid their choice. The menu changes each term and can be viewed here:
Children in the EYFS (Rainbow Class) and Key Stage One (Years 1 and 2) are entitled to a free school meal each day and we hope that as many children as possible will take up this valuable opportunity.
Children in Key Stage Two (Years 3,4,5 and 6) are able to have school meals but will need to pay for them. The cost of a school lunch is currently £2.90 and £14.50 for the week as of January 2023.
Correct dinner money must be sent in on the first day of the week (it will not be accepted on any other day). The dinner money should come in an envelope with the child’s name and the days on which you wish your child to stay. A Red letterbox is available in the office area where envelopes containing money can be posted. Cheques are acceptable and should be made payable to Southampton City Council. Parents can also make online payments by using Tucasi link on the Homepage or clicking on the link below:
Children have water to drink with their cooked meal. No extra drinks are necessary.
