Hot School Meals

Hot School Meals


The school offers a hot school meal service provided by Chartwells using ‘Steamplicity’ technology at a cost of £2.71 per meal. All of the meals in the Steamplicity portfolio have been approved by Chartwells nutritionists to ensure they meet the latest government guidelines.


All meals should be booked via ParentPay. This will be for all Free School Meals and for paid meals.


Please note that Parentmail will still continue to be our method of communication and payment for trips/activities. ParentPay is just to be used for ordering hot school meals for your child.

How to activate your ParentPay account

School Trips

Any children who are entitled to free school meals can order a free school packed lunch if they are due to be out on a school trip during the usual hot meal service. This must also be done on ParentPay.  Please select Chartwells Trip Lunch on the required day before the cut-off point.
