School Meals for Early Years 2, Year 1 and Year 2 Pupils

As you are aware, the Government have introduced an initiative for schools to supply a meal free of charge for all infant pupils. 

 A menu showing the varied choices can be viewed at www.feedinghungryminds.co.uk or click the link below.   The daily menu board will be outside the school office and the children then choose daily what they want to eat in class.

 School Meals for Year 3 to Year 6 Pupils

From April 24th 2017 the daily cost of a school meal is £2.10 (£10.50 for the week), and we are happy to accept payment for the week, month or half term. Cheques (made payable to WMDC) or cash should be placed in a sealed envelope clearly marked with the child’s name and class and handed into the class teacher or at the school office at the beginning of the school week.

The school newsletters will provide details of prepayment if you wish to pay in advance on a half termly basis.
