We provide high quality, healthy hot school meals for all children who are entitled to free school meals or who wish to pay for them from Year 3 to Year 6.
They cost £12.75 per week or can be purchased for single days at a cost of £2.55. Ideally meals need to be paid for in advance, at www.schoolgateway.com, although payments can also be made by cheques, payable to Devon County Council.
There is a three-weekly menu, details of which can be obtained from the school office or downloaded below.
Alternatively, your child may bring a packed lunch if you wish. Please ensure that lunch boxes and drink containers are unbreakable and clearly named. Fizzy drinks and sweets (including chocolate bars) should not be included in lunches.
For more information on the government’s vision for school meals, visit the School Food Plan website.
In addition, the government provides a piece of fresh fruit for all children in Foundation and KS1.
