The cost of a school meal is currently £2.50.
You can pay online if you have set up your Tucasi Online Payments Confidential Account. All parents and carers have been sent a letter on how to do this. If you require assistance, please contact Mrs Debbie Thomas on 01252 666846.
You can also look at the food choices through Tucasi and parents and carers can order meals online one day before the meal is required. Meals can be ordered online a week in advance. Please note that payment is required before a meal is ordered.
The food provided complies with the Hyperactive Children’s Support Group recommendations for removal of additives, flavourings and preservatives. We also continue to support local suppliers.
There are two choices available each day, a meat or vegetarian meal, which are cooked in the school kitchen. A lunchbag option is available in the summer term. No notice is required if you would like your child to have a school meal.
All meals have to be paid for in advance as no credit will be given.
