Our School Dinners
Please scroll down to see our full school dinner menu.
Our school caterers, Harrisons, provide good quality food with various choices available each day! The portion sizes are excellent and all food is cooked daily from fresh ingredients. If you would like your child to have a school dinner please follow the steps outlined below:
All dinner money should be paid using Wisepay (except for exceptional circumstances) and we ask that you deposit a minimum of £4.40 at a time. A quick link to Wisepay is below for your convenience.
Many parents take advantage of pre-paying for a week, month or half-term. This money stays on your child’s account and they are able to use it whenever required by simply requesting a ‘School Dinner’ during morning registration. Any money remaining on account at the end of term will be notified to parents and either carried forward to the following term or refunded where necessary. We are always happy to provide details if you are unsure of the amount of credit on a child’s account – please ask in the school office!
All money must be paid in advance (£2.20 per dinner) where required - don’t forget that KS1 children are entitled to Universal Free School Meals.
