We are delighted to announce that we have a new catering company called Dolce, who will be providing lunches to our pupils from September 2020.
Pupils are able to bring their own packed lunch or buy a delicious lunch on-site for only £2.30.
School lunches can be ordered for the children, in advance, by parents at home, via SchoolGrid. Please note the system will allow you to choose a meal on the morning of that day until 9.00am. If a meal has not been selected in advance the children can choose in the classroom on a daily basis.
Please log onto your School grid account to make payment.
Dolce use an administration system SchoolGrid to provide the lunch system. All payments must be made online for lunches. Dolce is a cash free system, therefore no cash will be accepted for lunch, all payments must be made online. t Parents may pay for lunch on a daily, weekly, monthly or termly basis. Lunch money payment is made directly to Dolce, through School Grid.
It is a parent's responsibility to provide lunch for your child. If your child orders a school lunch and a payment has not been received, an email will be sent it is expected that the payment will be made either the same day or the next morning. The online payment facility will enable payments to made at any time of day or night. A child will not be allowed to order a meal if the debt reaches 5 days. You will have to provide a packed lunch on the 6th day of debt. We will call you to let you know that your child will not be receiving a school lunch if you reach a debt on the 6th day.
The online facility will enable parents to keep track of their balance and also to see details of the meal choice of their child.
FREE SCHOOL MEALS
If you receive any of the following support payments your child may be entitled to receive free school meals:
Children who receive a qualifying benefit in their own right are also allowed to receive free school meals.
Children under the compulsory school age who are in full time education may also be entitled to receive free school meals.
If you think your child is entitled to free school meals, you’ll need to apply at http://www.cloudforedu.org.uk/ofsm/rbwm/
Registering your child for Free School Meals means that the school receives the extra money and funding to support your child for a least six years even if you don't take up the free meal. Further information is available here
From September 2014 primary schools have a legal duty to offer all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 a free school meal called a Universal Infant Meals. This should not be confused with registering pupils for Free School Meals if you are from a lower income family and receive benefits.
