Information about School Meals

SCHOOL MEALS

Sefton catering provide school meals for our children. Meals are prepared on site by our school cook. 

The price for a KS2 school meal is £2.25 and children will be able to choose from two hot options or a sandwich option. 

Your child will be required to follow a weekly meal pattern and the school office will require 2 weeks’ notice to amend the pattern. If your child is entitled to Free School Meals, please still complete a meal pattern but no charge will be made for meals taken. 

 

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for a Government funded free meal as part of the Universal Free School Meals initiative. Parents are able to opt out of this and provide a packed lunch for their child if they wish.

We know many family’s circumstances may have changed due to the Covid-19 situation, so if you think you may be entitled to Free School Meals please contact your local authority check your eligibility.
