Free School Meals
All our meals are prepared fresh on-site each day by our Kitchen Team, led by Mark Wade. As well as the hot meal choices, children also have the choice of the salad bar. The cost of school meals are £2.20 daily, £11.00 weekly, which are payable in advance using your online SIMS Pay account. Children in classes R to year 2 receive the universal free school meal. Children in years 3 to 6 have to pay for meals unless you qualify for free school meals.
Please note that due to deliveries, the kitchen may occasionally have to change meals at short notice. We will advise you by text as soon as we are aware of any changes. Thank you.
