School Meals & Milk

School Meals


School meals are £2.50 per day (£12.50 per week).

School meals must be pre-ordered and paid for via SchoolGrid.

If you have a child in school, you should have already received an email from SchoolGrid to enable you to activate your account. If you have not received this, please contact the school office.


Our school meals are cooked and prepared on the premises.

On offer each day there is:

  • a minimum of two choices of main course with vegetables or salad, plus potatoes or an alternative carbohydrate such as pasta. In many schools there is also a third choice option of jacket potato with a variety of fillings
  • two choices of dessert or fresh fruit
  • extra bread
  • a non meat choice
  • a drink which could be fruit juice, milk or water

The school menus run on a three week cycle which is changed twice a year to avoid repetition and introduce new dishes.
