All meals must be paid in advance. Our Caterers are Principals and more information about payment options can be found on their website.

Principals School Meal Autumn/Winter Menu 2017/18

Since September 2014, every child in reception, year 1 and year 2 in state-funded schools now receives a free school lunch.

School menus are now measured against tough national standards, so by choosing school meals for your child, you know they’re being offered healthy, tasty dishes to fuel them up for the afternoon.
