All school meals must be booked and paid for online using ParentPay. This must be done by the evening before you would like the meal.
Attached is a simple guide on how to make the meal bookings online, but if you have any queries please speak or email the school office and we will assist you. The menu is attached, but is also on Parentpay to make it easier for selection. If you have previously informed us of a dietary requirement, please still book a meal this way and the kitchen will be alerted when booked.
Please be aware that even if your child is in Hedgehog or Squirrel Class and receives free Universal School Meals, or is in receipt of Income-Based Free School Meals, you must still make your selection.
Meals are freshly prepared, with a wide range of healthy, delicious and nutritious dishes available, at the low price of just £2.41 per day. To increase to £2.50 1st January 2024.
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 do not have to pay for dinners as they are entitled to a free school dinner under the Universal Free School Meals Scheme.
For children in Years 3, 4, 5 or 6, dinners need to be paid for in advance, via Parentpay. Please see the Parentpay section for more details.
If you think that your child may be entitled to Free School Meals you can use North Somerset Council's online checker here.
Free School Meals
Do you know if your child is entitled to free school meals?
There are two schemes for free school meals:
- universal infant free school meals for all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 – you don’t need to apply as they’re automatically given at the school
- free school meals for people on qualifying benefits – you’ll need to apply for these
Criteria for free school meals for people on qualifying benefits
Children attending our schools whose parents or carers receive any of these benefits are entitled to free school meals:
- income support
