Meals and Packed Lunches
School meals are provided each day and are varied, balanced and nutritious.
The current cost of a school lunch per week is £11.00. Dinner money should be paid at the start of each week.
The Education Authority provides free meals for children whose parents qualify. Some parents may not know whether they qualify or not, other may not wish to apply, but by doing so you can benefit yourself and the school. This is because the registration for free school meals is linked to the school budget and contributes to the amount of money allocated to the school each year. Therefore we would ask that all parents who qualify, register for them (even if you choose not to take advantage of the system). We must stress that it is not possible for anyone in the school to distinguish children receiving a free meal from those pupils who pay.
Application forms for free school meals may be obtained from the school office.
Please contact the school for a menu.
Children may bring a packed lunch to school but fizzy drinks, hot drinks, soup, flasks, or glass containers are not allowed for safety reasons. Sweets and chocolate bars are also not permitted in packed lunches as we are committed to ensuring that the children adopt healthy lifestyles.
