At lunchtime, children can stay for a nutritious school dinner, freshly prepared on a daily basis in our new kitchen. Menus are provided on a termly basis. The cost of a school lunch is £2.20 per day for junior children and can be paid weekly or half-termly. Infant children currently receive free school dinners as part of a new government initiative.
Dinner money is payable on Monday mornings – please send the correct amount in an envelope marked with your child’s name and class. Cheques for dinner money should be made payable to: Lancashire County Council.
Alternatively, children may bring a packed lunch from home. For information on free school meal eligibility, parents/carers should contact the Education Office on at the Globe Centre, Accrington on 01254 220711.
Changes to School Meal Arrangements
Changes to meal arrangements can only be made at the beginning of every half-term and at least two weeks’ notice must be given. In exceptional circumstances, the Headteacher may allow a child to change outside these periods. Should a pupil wish to change meal arrangements, parents should complete a ‘meal changes form’ obtainable from the school office. Once a commitment is made to a school meal, parents will be liable to pay for the complete half-term, unless otherwise agreed by the Headteacher.
