The new deadline for ordering hot meals will be midnight on Sunday, 7 days before the week in which the meals are required. You can order meals further in advance if you prefer.
What happens if I forget to order meals?
Please note that meals will only be provided to children if they have been ordered online prior to the deadline.
If you do not order a hot meal for your child, you will need to provide a packed lunch from home.
What are the benefits of hot school meals?
Good food has been shown to lead not only to healthier, happier and more fulfilled children, but to improved behaviour and educational attainment. We believe the shcool lunchtime is a great opportunity for children to sit down together to enjoy a tasty meal and further develop their social skills. We therefore hope you will take advantage of the oportunity for your child to enjoy a healthy, balanced and nutritious hot school meal each lunchtime.
