School Meals

Birmingham City Council’s catering company ‘Citiserve’ provides meals that are prepared daily on the school site.  A vegetarian option is always available.


Under the Government 'Free School Meal' scheme children in Reception to Year 2 will have free school meals. The cost of school meals for Nursery and KS2 children, from April 16 2018, are as follows: Nursery £2.00 a day = £10.00 per week. Year 3 to Year 6 will be £2.30 a day = £11.50 per week .  It is much preferred that payment is made at the beginning (Monday) of each week, through your child's parentpay account, but arrangements can be made if you wish to pay for the term.

If you think your child is eligible for free school meals please enquire at the school office as the school gets Pupil Premium money for every child who takes a free school meal.
