School Meals

The school operates a two/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 £2.30 per day/£11.50 a week from September 2018 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.

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).
