School Meals

The school operates a three option menu, one of which is vegetarian. In the summer term, we also provide a packed lunch option on certain days. The emphasis is on providing home cooked food in keeping with the school's philosophy on healthy lifestyles.


Who provides the school meals?

Meals are provided by Edsential, Cheshire West & Chester Councils catering partner.

How do I pay for school meals?

School meals cost £2.37 per day/£11.85 a week for KS2 pupils which should be paid online via your ParentPay account,  Payment must be made in advance of taking a meal. It is prefered if payment can be made at least weekly. Arrangements can be made to pay in cash with a Paypoint card if prefered.

Pupils in KS1, (Reception, Y1 & Y2) are eligible for infant free school meals so don't need to pay.

Can my child bring a break-time snack?

Children are allowed to bring a healthy snack for morning break but we suggest to parents that fruit is the most suitable option. School snacks (toast, bagels and fruit juice) are provided for KS2 children, which should be paid for in cash. Fresh fruit is provided for all our infant age children (Reception, Y1 and Y2).

Free School Meals

This is different/in addition to infant free school meals which all children in Reception, Y1 and Y2 are automarically entitled to receive. School can recieve additional funding to support children from low income families who are in receipt of certain benefits and may be eligible to receive free school meals. To find out if your child is eligible for Free School Meals, please see further information on the CWAC council website via this link, .
