School Meals

Totally Local Company provides our school meals. Each morning the children are offered a choice of meals, which they can pre order via the classroom each day.

Each day, we will provide children with a delicious, wholesome hot meal. Vegetables and salad, in addition to vegetarian options, a dessert and variety of drinks complement this.

Totally Local Company use an electronic pre ordering system, called Cypad. Parents have the option to pre-order meals at home via their ParentPay login.

Allergy and Dietary Requirements

If your child has an allergy please inform the school as soon as possible. Common allergens can be entered onto the system and Cypad will help block any unsafe options by eliminating them from your child’s pre ordering; it will also inform the cook on the lunchtime screen.

We are now using a cashless payment system; all dinner money should be paid via ParentPay using your unique login details.

Universal Infant Free School Meals

You may be aware that the Government has announced that, from September 2014, funding will be provided to enable schools to offer a free lunch to every infant age child (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2).

Pilot projects have found that universal free school meals can have significant benefits both for individual children and for the broader life of the school.
