Meals and Milk

School Meals


Our school kitchen is run by Hertfordshire  Catering. From September 2015, school meals for children in Years 3 - Year 6 cost £2.40 per day (£12 per week).  All school meals must be paid for in advance on Mondays either weekly, monthly or termly. Cheques should be made payable to Hertfordshire Catering Ltd.


All children in Reception - Year 2 are entitled to a Free School Meal.


Free school meals for children in Years 3 - Year 6 must be authorised by Herts County Council before they can be given to a child at school. Meals must be paid for until the entitlement has been approved. If the meals are back-dated, refunds will then be issued.


If you think you may be entitled to free school meals, an application must be made either on line at or by telephone to Customer Service Centre on 01438 737370.

School Milk


School milk is free to children under five and for those children authorised as free school meals. If your child has their fifth birthday during the term, milk has to be paid for that entire term. Please ask at the office for the latest fee for milk.  Cheques should be made payable to Herts County Council.


Our school is also part of the Healthy Schools programme and children in Key Stage 1 and Early Years receive free fruit every day at snack time.
