Autumn / Winter Menu 2020/2021 - From 2nd November 2020
Free School Meals
School lunches are prepared and cooked on the premises daily by our cooks, using only the freshest preservative and additive free ingredients. There is always a vegetarian option and all efforts are made to cater for everyone's tastes. The current price of cooked school lunch is £2.30 which we feel represents good value for a nutritionally balanced meal.
Alternatively children may bring a packed lunch into school.
Children sit in mixed age groups within the school hall and are looked after by Miss McCormack, Mrs Tobin, and Mrs Gloyns who are our mealtime assistants.
Lunch money is paid for in advance either weekly, monthly, or half termly. We encourage the use of Parentpay which is a website to pay for dinners online. However we also accept cash or cheques made payable to First Federation Trust.

Class 1 will pay termly for snacks via Parent Pay (unless you wish to provide your child with a snack from home, in which case please inform the teacher) They will not need to handle any tickets. Snacks will be brought to class and then eaten together.
Free fruit is supplied to children in Class 1.
