When we return in September our hot lunches provider will be Chartwells who will be providing lunches for all the school in Victoria Academies Trust. The menu for the first half-term is available to order from on Parentpay and is a mixture of old favourites and some new dishes. We are hoping that in September we will be able to host some tasting sessions so that parents and pupils can sample some of the new options.
Remember that pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free hot lunch so please make sure you take up the opportunity. You can do selected days if you want or book for the whole week. You can select from a main meal or a vegetarian option, as well as there always being the alternative of pasta or jacket potato everyday.
If you have any queries regarding lunches please message Mrs Calder on Class Dojo or call the school office.
Please place all lunch orders through the Parentpay app. Meals need to be ordered by midnight on a Wednesday night for the following week. Meals can be ordered up until the end of the following term. Any queries with meal orders please contact the School office 01562 823857.
