So if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or 2 in September there will be no more paying for their school meals or worrying about what to put in their packed lunch. All children in these age groups will be entitled to receive a nutritious meal every lunchtime. If you would like your child in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 to receive a school lunch, please notify the School Office at the beginning of each half term.
Children in Nursery and in Key Stage 2, (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) will still need to pay for their school meals. School lunch costs £2 per day and is paid for half-termly or termly in advance.
Payment for lunch can be made via the online payment system at www.schoolgateway.com.
