School Meals

Our new school meal service from Relish! Launched 6th November 2023

Dear Parents / Carers,

Starting from Monday 6th November (the first day back after half term), our new catering providers became Relish!

Recently, we visited a school that currently use Relish! and were blown away by the quality of what was on offer.

In addition, we will be collecting lunch payments only through Parent Pay. 

We no longer accept any cash payments in school.




What happens next?



  • Read the letter of introduction from Relish below.
  • Have a look at our new menus below.
  • Head over to  where you can view more detail about menus, ingredients and allergy information.
  • While you are there, please create a parent account, you will use this for online ordering from home when that goes live.


  • Please take the time to look at the menus with your child(ren) and discuss what they would like to eat.


On Wednesday 1st November

  • ParentPay went live for meals and you can now top up your account in advance. You can put any amount in your account and the balance will automatically reduce when a meal is taken.


On Monday 6th November - Launch Day - Menu Week 1

  • We launched the new Relish Meal Service. Children will order their meals with the class teacher at registration each morning. Please discuss the meal choice with your child before school. When your child has a meal the balance in your ParentPay account will be reduced by the price of the meal.


  • Week starting Monday 13th November  we will continue as above with menu week 2
  • Week starting Monday 20th November  we will continue as above with menu week 3


Towards the end of term...

  • We plan to make home ordering available. Parents will be able to order meals in advance from home. This gives parents and children the best experience of ordering together.
