School Meals


Dinner money must be paid at least weekly, in advance. Please do this online. Speak to a member of the office staff if you need support in doing this.

Children in Reception/FS2, Year 1 and 2 are all entitled to free dinners under the Government 'Free School Meals for Infants Scheme'.


Please see advice on whether you qualify for free meals in our download below, or go to the Bury Council Website.


Dinner Menus
We do not have paper copies of dinner menus. To have a look at the menu, please download it below.


Packed Lunches
From a point of safety we ask that you do not send in glass bottles or breakable flasks. We do not allow hot food to be brought into school as we are unable to check the temperature.

Chocolate biscuits are permissible, but not sweets or other chocolate products.


We have children in school with severe nut allergies and so please ensure that nuts are not included in your child's lunch box. Please see the information below on 'Nuts in school'.


Changing from dinners to packed lunches or vice versa

Please note that if you wish for your child to swap from dinners to packed lunches or vice versa, two weeks’ notice must be given. This must be put in writing on one of our forms in the office.


Nuts in School
We have a number of children (that we know of) currently in our school that can have severe allergic reactions to peanuts and other nuts. This allergic reaction (anaphylactic shock) can occur through ingestion of peanut/nut products, cross contamination and breathing peanuts in the air.

Since this condition can be life threatening, we are asking for your help in minimising the risk to these children by:

  1.   Avoiding giving children peanuts in school lunches
  2.   Avoiding giving peanut butter sandwiches, other spreads containing nuts such as Nutella and snacks/bars containing nuts or labelled ‘may contain nut traces’ in school lunches
  3.   Asking children not to share their lunches
  4.   Making sure hand and faces are washed if nut products have been eaten before school.

Due to the potential severity of the problem, it is important that all parents and carers carry out the suggested measures and reduce the risk of any allergic reactions.
