We offer a varied choice of hot and cold menus at break and lunchtime.

There is a cashless card system for purchasing food in school which is managed by Scopay. Students will be issued with a contactless payment fob. Parents/Carers can set any limit they feel appropriate for their child to spend each day in the school canteen. Limits can be set for morning break and lunchtime if required.

A value meal can be purchased for £2.40 per day.

If students lose their payment fob a replacement will cost £3 (each time).

Dietary Requirements

If your child has any specific dietary requirements please discuss this with the school.

Free School Meals

If you’re receiving particular benefits, your child/children may be entitled to receive a free school meal. More information about who is eligible for free school meals is available on the government website.

If your child is on free school meals they will have their Free School Meals allowance credited to their account daily. Please note that this entitles your child to spend up to a limited amount of money. If they go over this limit they will need to have enough credit in their account to pay the difference. Additional funds can be added to accounts.
