Hot Meals

Our delicious hot meals are provided by Dolce who offer a variety of meals across a three week cycle. The meals are nutritionally balanced and have been created to meet the standards set by the Children's Food Trust.

Whilst Dolce will endeavour to provide the menu choice of the day there may be occasions when this will be subject to change.

How much will I pay?

  • All school lunches for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are now free.
  • Children in other year groups may also be entitled to Free School Meals if you, or your partner, are in receipt of certain benefits - check whether your child is eligible.
  • For all other children, meals cost £2.32 per day and this includes a main meal, bread, pudding and fresh drinking water.
