Half term payments will be available from noon on Wednesday to the Sunday at 6.00pm before returning  back to school.  Weekly payments will be available to purchase every Wednesday at noon to Sunday 6.00pm.

If you choose to pay by cash/cheque, payments for the kitchen should be placed in an envelope clearly stating your child's name, class and what the money is for.  This must be handed to your child in the morning and your child will then deposit the envelope into the dinner money box in their class. Change, if required will be returned in your child’s book bag the same day.

A reminder that all children who have signed up for the universal free school dinners (Reception/Yr1/Yr2) will NOT have the option to have a packed lunch or grab a bag.  At the end of the term you will have the option to opt out of the scheme or sign up for another term. If your child does want to change, it must remain the same for the rest of the half term.
