A tasty and healthy variety of school meals are served daily by our dedicated kitchen staff. Please see a list of our current meals. Dinners currently cost £1.90 per day and parents are asked to pay for the dinners in advance, into the cash machine which is located just inside the main entrance door off the school playground. Parents are issued with a PIN number for their child's account. To make it even easier and more convenient, parents may now pay through their bank if they have on-line banking facilities. Please see the office staff for full details.
The up-dated schools meals policy requests that parents do not allow their accounts to go into arrears.
As from September 2014, all children in Foundation 2 class and Classes 1, 2 and 3 have been entitled to a universal infant free school meal. This a government led initiative and has been very successful at Summer Lane Primary and only a few children in these classes are bringing sandwiches from home. This can save a parent £340 per school year.
Children tell their class teacher on Mondays if they require a school dinner or if they are bringing a packed lunch from home. It is requested that any changes to a child's dinner pattern during the week are notified to the school office so that the catering staff can prepare sufficient meals for everyone.
Please see our office staff for any queries regarding dinners and if you wish to apply for Scheme of Aid, should you be experiencing financial difficulties.
