School meals are available to all primary school children within the Borough. We also provide school meals for several secondary schools.
Our school meals are always fresh, very nutritious, and great value for money. A two-course meal including a drink is only £10.25 weekly, that's £2.05 a day for Key Stage 2 children. Key Stage 1 children are entitled to a free school meal.
