School Meals

Our children can enjoy a variety of good, fresh food, prepared daily in our school kitchen by our dedicated and devoted school cooks.  Our catering supplier is Hertfordshire Catering Limited who make it clear that their aim is to 'go above and beyond government guidelines on nutritional standards.'

We do ask that payment for school meals are paid for daily, monthly, termly or half termly, in advance. This can be done through the school office by cash or cheque (cheque's made payable to Hertfordshire Catering Limited). Alternatively they can be paid for online through the School Gateway Website.

Dinner Money Debt

Due to the changes in guidelines, we will no longer be sending out letters with the children for dinner money debts. Therefore, please can we ask parents to check weekly the amount owing by using the Gateway app. If the outstanding amount goes over £20, we will send you an e-mail and ask you not to order any more meals until the debt is paid. If you are not signed up to use the app, here is the link to do so:- https://login.schoolgateway.com/0/auth/login 

  Snacks

We encourage children to bring a healthy snack for break time e.g. a piece of fruit or chopped vegetables.  We do not allow sweets, crisps or cakes.  For safety reasons we do not allow children to bring any product containing nuts or traces of nuts for snacks or in their packed lunch.

Guidance on healthy school packed lunches can be found here.
