School Dinners

Dear Parents and carers,


From Term 2 we will be moving to online meal bookings for lunches. This will enable children to choose the meal they would like, reduce food waste and streamline admin systems both in class and in the office.


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 new menu is also attached, but is also on Parentpay to make it easier for selection. (Please note, as we are entering the winter term, we will no longer be offering sandwiches.) 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 Puffin or Kingfisher Class and receives free Universal School Meals, or is in receipt of Income-Based Free School Meals, you must still make your selection. This must be done by the evening before you would like the meal. Your child will no longer be able to order a lunch in school in the morning.


We hope that this will be an efficient way of managing school lunches, and thank you in advance for your co-operation.


Kind regards

Banwell Primary

Meals are freshly prepared in school, with a wide range of healthy, delicious and nutritious dishes available, at the low price of just £2.30 per day.


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.
