School meals

Dolce are our school dinner suppliers

Special Diets - Allergies & Food Intolerance

If your child requires a special diet due to allergies or food intolerance you now need to complete a Special Diet Request Form which you can request from the School Office.

Once your form is received a Dolce Nutrionalist, in conjunction with our School Cook, will prepare a suitable set of menus for your child. You will then be asked to approve this menu. 

School Grid

When your child first starts school, the School Office will set you up on School Grid. School Grid will give you access to the school menu, list of allergens and will enable you to book your child's school dinner. Please make sure you book your child's school dinner before 08h45 each day. 

Special Diets - Religious Beliefs

If your child requires a special diet due to religious beliefs, please make sure you clearly state this in your application form.

Vegetarian Diets

If your child is vegetarian please pick the vegetarian option on School Grid. No special form needs to be completed. Children who are listed as vegetarian will be given vegetarian food only. 

Children who just do not like the meat option on any particular day will not necessarily be given a vegetarian option as only so many vegetarian portions are cooked each day. 

The menu will alternate jacket potatoes or sandwiches every day.

Universal Infant Free School Meals: FS-Y2

All children from Foundation Stage to Year 2 will receive a free school meal. 

Paid for meals: Y3-Y6

Paid for meals are £2.35 per day for children in Year 3 - Year 6. School Dinners are paid via School Grid. You can top up your child's account as and when you choose. You will be sent an email alerting you if your balance goes below £5.

Free School Meals

Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:

Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.

If you think you are eligible for free school meals (even if your child receives Universal Infant Free School Meals) please let the staff in the School Office know as we receive essential additional funding for every free school meal pupil which will benefit your child beyond just free school dinners.
