Children can either have a school dinner every day, cooked on-site by our kitchen staff, or they can bring in a packed lunch every day. Please keep us informed of any dietary requirements your child has.
School dinners are free for children in Years R, 1 and 2. For children in other years and in Nursery, there is a charge for school dinners – for the academic year from September 2021, this will be £2.45 per day.
School dinners are paid for online. Payments should be made half-termly or weekly in advance, and your account must always be in credit. We will notify you of the amounts due for each half term in advance. The money for school dinners goes directly to Surrey County Council.
Unfortunately, if your school dinner account is more than 2 weeks in arrears, you will have to send your child in with a packed unch until the debt is cleared.
If your child has a school dinner and is going to be absent from school for any reason, (e.g. illness, medical appointment, etc.), please contact the School Office by 9.00am to let us know whether they require lunch that day. Providing we hear from you by 9.00am, we are able to cancel your child’s meal for that day so you will not be charged.
We ask that you include healthy choices in your child’s packed lunch, for example: sandwiches, fruit/vegetables, water. Please do not include chocolate bars or fizzy drinks.
Please note: Packed lunches must not include nut-based ingredients, i.e. Nutella or peanut butter. We are a nut-free school as we have children with life-threatening nut allergies.
It is essential that we know about any dietary requirements or restrictions that your child has. Please make sure you complete the Special Diet Request Form, even if your child has no dietary requirements or brings in a packed lunch. Any changes to your child’s dietary requirements must be notified to the School Office immediately.
