School meals are cooked on the premises and currently cost £2.30 per meal. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will receive free school meals.
Our kitchen offers a variety of healthy dishes each day from hot meals to school packed lunches. Menus are altered 3 times a year, offered on a 3 week rotation with 3 choices each day. The system is totally flexible with children able to choose any number of school meals per week and they can order their meal each day at registration.
You can see full details of menus, and other matters relating to meals and nutrition, on the Hertfordshire Catering Ltd website:
Money for meals MUST be paid for in advance, wherever possible. Payments can be made via Credit/Debit card at www.schoolgateway.com. If you wish to pay via cheque or cash, this should be sent into the school office. Cheques should be made payable to Hertfordshire Catering Limited or HCL. Any cash payments should be taken directly to the school office, where a receipt will be issued.
