School Meals

School meals are provided by our external contractor Shell's Cuisine.   The school has a two week rolling menu each half term.  Allergen information is provided on  separate charts for each menu.

Usuallly, a two course meal using fresh and locally sourced ingredients is available each day for just £2.30. Due to current safety advice, we have revised this system. Under the new lunch system, all classes remain in their classrooms to eat lunch and then go outside in their separate playground areas to play.  'Grab Bag' lunches replace the usual two course hot dinners. 

Universal  Free School Meals means every child in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 is entitled to a meal at no cost each day.  Children in years 3 to 6 need to pay for their meal although some families may be entitled to free school meals.  To make enquiries about free school meal entitlement ring 0300 123 5012, look on the Cheshire East website under schools or ask at the school office.

All paid for meals must be paid for in the week they are taken.  Any outstanding monies owing will be notified each Friday for payment the following Monday.  If meals continue to be unpaid the school is unable to provide any further meals until payment is received.

Our Parent Pay online payment system must be used to easily pay for meals.  

If you think you may be eligable for Free School Meals, please find the document below called 'How to apply for Free School Meals'.

This half term's menu is available below.

Roast Dinner rotation timetable


We now offer roast dinners for each class on a fortnightly basis. Each week, two classes will be offered a roast dinner and will eat it in the school hall. The two classes will be in their bubbles and eat in two settings to ensure that there are no bubble crosses. The hall will be cleaned between each sitting. If your child has a packed lunch, they will still eat with their friends in the hall. The hot dinner timetable is below:

06.05.211 /2 AND YEAR 5 /6ROAST GAMMON
20.05.211 /2 AND YEAR 5 /6ROAST BEEF


Further dates and meals will be shared at the end of this first cycle.
