For children in Years 3 to 6 the cost of a school meal is £2.55 a day (£12.75per week).  We ask that school lunches are paid in advance & the child's account always as a credit balance. This is paid online using the School Gateway. The minimum payment is £12.75 (but this will be rolling credit balance if your child only has 1 meal a week)

For children in Foundation Stage and Years 1 and 2 they are automatically entitled to receive a free school meal under the Universal Free School meals scheme introduced by the Government.
