School Lunches

See below the weekly lunch choices.

We aim to ensure school meals are nutritionally balanced and very good value for money. The dinners are served in a cafeteria system and this enables both choice and variety in the menu. They are considered very good value at £2.35 per day and provide a balanced and healthy meal. Our meals are provided by Surrey Commercial Services.

If your child is due to be having hot dinners, you may pay either half-termly or weekly for these (cheques to be made payable Surrey County Council) or online at  

All school dinner payments must be paid for in advance; weekly payments being paid on the Monday morning, and half-termly payments in the first week of term. Please ensure that you pay for your school dinners promptly. We are unable to give credit for school meal payments. Non-payment will result in your child not being allowed to continue with school meals.

You have already indicated on the admission form whether your child is taking hot dinners or packed lunches – please ensure that a week’s notice is given in writing to the school office if there is a change to your child’s weekly lunch arrangement.

For those children who bring packed lunches, we would insist that lunch products do not contain nuts to accommodate those children who are sensitive to nut products.  Sweets and chocolate should not be brought to school. Please ensure your children are provided with a healthy, balanced packed lunch. We would also suggest placing cool packs in lunch boxes during warm weather as we are unable to store them in a refrigerator.

All of the water at school is drinking water, so please ensure that your child has a water bottle each day which they can refill.
