School Meals

Please find our latest school menu below.

Free School Meals

The Government announced that from September 2014, all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 school pupils in England will be eligible for Universal Infant Free School Meals. This is to encourage a balanced diet from an early age and help children be as healthy as possible.

The cost of a school meal for KS2 children is £2.50 per day (£12.50 per week). As we are a cashless school, you are required to pay for your child’s school meals using our online payments system, SchoolGrid.

If you are in receipt of certain benefits you may be entitled to free school meals for your child regardless of their age.  It is well worth registering even if your child is in infants and already receives free school meals. This is because schools receive a ‘pupil premium’ payment for each eligible child which will be spent on resources to benefit your child’s education. 

For more information contact the Bury Council Free School Meals Team on 0161 253 5858.

Please contact the school office if you would like your child to change to school dinners as two weeks' notice is sometimes required.


Please note we are a nut-free school.

We have a number of children with nut allergies, who could become very ill if exposed to nuts. They do not have to touch nuts to suffer a reaction.

Therefore, we do not allow nuts to come into school- please do not include any items containing nuts in your child's packed lunch. Please check ingredients carefully.
