School meals

As a school we’re proud of our school meals service.  We are able to offer both hot food and rolls every day of the week.

School meals cost £2.30 per day (£11.50 per week).  Dinner money (payable to Essex County Councilmust be paid in advance either weekly, half termly or termly and preferably on a Monday.  

If a school meal has to be taken in an emergency and arrears are incurred, this will only be accepted for one week.  A note will be sent at the end of the week for payment on the following Monday and the child will have to have packed lunches until the arrears are paid.

As of September 2014 all children in Reception and Key Stage 1 (years 1 and 2) are entitled to a free school dinner

  • Even if your child is in receipt of universal infant free school meals (i.e. where your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2), you can still apply if you believe you may be eligible for free school meals, because the protection will continue beyond Year 2 and your child may be eligible for Pupil Premium funding.

Dinner registers

If your child is going to be late in for any reason, i.e. Medical appointments, please contact the school office by 9.30am with their lunch requirements.  We need to inform the kitchen staff by 9.30 am of choices so that they have time to prepare. 

Dinner money balances

Credits arising from previous terms are carried forward and you will have been notiified of the amount at the end of the previous term.  Please take any money in credit off from the total for the current half term.

If you have incurred arrears from a previous term please include this amount with your first payment for the new term as dinner money needs to be paid in advance.
