At Churchend Primary Academy our school lunches are provided by Chartwells Independent Caterers.
They provide healthy and tasty meals each day. We give careful thought to our ongoing menu to take account of seasonal produce to provide delicious lunches. Most families take up the option of a warm nutritious lunch for their child.
There is a choice of hot and cold food, including hot meat and vegetarian dishes, as well as a comprehensive salad bar. There is also a choice of dessert dishes, including fresh fruit. Provision is made for vegetarians and those children who require a special diet (vegan/halal/allergies).
Children in years Reception to Year 2 are not required to pay for their meals due to government grants, however most children in years 3 to 6 continue to pay for a nutritious lunch for £2.45 a day.
This can be done in in a variety of ways via a system called ParentPay. You will be given an account which you can pay into via PayPoint systems in newsagents, online, or at school by cash or card.
We do ask that you order your meals in 24 hours in advance and up to the end of the term if possible.
Some nursery families, in receipt of benefits, may be entitled to free school meals and the school will support these families to receive Government funded free meals.
