The cost of a school meal is £2 per day. Payment should be made in advance via our online payment system, ParentPay. Please ensure that your payments are always up to date. In very exceptional circumstances where reminders have been sent out and there are still payments outstanding, we reserve the right to request you to provide a packed lunch for your child until such time as the outstanding balance is cleared.

 

If your child would like to change from packed lunches to school dinners, or vice-versa, we will need at least one week's notice as our cook orders in advance. Thank you for your co-operation with this.

 

If your child requires an amended diet, because they have an allergy or specific medical or dietary requirement, you will need to provide a letter from your doctor or hospital consultant confirming this. Doncaster Schools Catering cannot alter any of the menus for any children without this evidence. 

 

Doncaster Schools Catering, who are responsible for providing our school dinners have been awarded Silver accreditation from the Soil Association for their menus. Part of the criteria for this is that ingredient spend on ethical and environmentally friendly food, locally sourced ingredients is taken into account, including the use of Organic, Fairtrade and Freedom Foods. This award shows the quality of ingredients that is used when providing meals to our children in school. 

 

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a Universal School Meal. This is a government initiative and means that families won't have to pay for school meals until their child is in Year 3. This currently equates to a saving of approximately £370 per school year. 

 

If you are in receipt of certain benefits, you may be entitled to Free School Meals, which is separate to the Universal School Meal. If you are unsure whether you are entitled, you can access information on www.doncaster.gov.uk/services/schools/free-school-meals
