School Meals

In September 2014 the Priory Rise kitchen opened and we are delighted to now be able to provide quality freshly cooked meals to children at lunch time. All meals are freshly prepared by our own catering team under the leadership and guidance of our Cook/Manager, Miss Bev Atkinson.

Every day there is a choice of a main meal, a vegetarian option or a jacket potato; there is also a choice of dessert including the option of fresh fruit segments or fruit yoghurt. Children do not need to choose which meal they would like in advance, however we do need to know in advance which children require a meal in order to ensure sufficient food is prepared and avoid waste. A three-week rolling menu is published in advance so that parents and children can see the kinds of meals on offer each day. Please click on the link to see the delicious sounding menu!
Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal and we strongly encourage all parents to take up this option - not only are there the obvious health and social benefits of sitting down together to enjoy a cooked meal, this represents a significant cost saving to families. The entitlement to a free meal for children in Key Stage 1 and Reception is a universal benefit and is not dependent on parents' income or circumstances.

Children in Key Stage 2 are able to purchase a meal at a cost of £2.30 per day - this is a two-course meal consisting of a main course and a dessert option.

As of May 2017 half-term all meal orders and payments will be made using +Pay on ParentMail - an online payment service which allows you to pay for school items on your smartphone, tablets or computer. Please note that with +Pay we are no longer able to offer the 50p discount for a full week of meals.

Please remember that if your family receives certain benefits your child may be entitled to free meals and the school may also receive additional funding to support your child. Please click on the letter and form below to find out more about this.
