TMBC have notified us that School Meals will increase in price from September 1st 2019 to £2.30 per day.
School meals must be paid online direct to Tameside Council on a Monday morning. Please click on the following link to make payment. School Meals Payments. (Please note, we no longer accept cash in school),
School will send reminder texts each week if payment is not received. If payment has not been received after 4 weeks then an arrears letter will be sent. If payment has still not been received by the date stated in the lettter then the debt will automatically be referred to the LA who will charge an extra £35.00 to cover the costs.
Children may bring a packed lunch from home as an alternative to a cooked school meal, please provide a healthy balanced lunch for your child. We ask that you do not include fizzy drinks or cans, breakable containers, sweets or chocolate. Please ensure the lunch is in a lunch bag, clearly marked with name and class, and provide a spoon if necessary as there may not be one available.
School policy requires two week's notice before the end of a half term to change dinner provision.
Universal Free School Meals
From September 2014 children in Reception Class, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal under a new government initiative. Should your child wish to have a school meal it will be free of charge whilst they are in these classes.
