The current cost of school dinners is £2.30 per day or £9.20 per week (with the 5 meals for the price of 4 offer), paid weekly in advance by either cash or cheque (cheques made payable to Scolarest).

Pupils in foundation, year 1 and 2 can now benefit from the government initiative of Universal Infant Free School meals.

Is your child in foundation, Year 1 or Year 2?

Child Tax Credit
Income Support
Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
Support under Part V1 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

The school may be able to receive pupil premium funding which can be used to support your child’s education.


Lunchtime 1113

Tuck Shop

To encourage an understanding of money and its value we run a tuck shop on a Tuesday at morning break. £1.00 is sufficient to purchase a drink and a healthy snack.

Water Bottles

We hope that parents will provide water bottles on a daily basis for each child to use in the classroom throughout the day. Fruit is provided free of charge to the pupils in class 1 and is available each day at first break.
