We are very proud of our freshly cooked school meals in our school. They are lovingly prepared daily by our qualified chef using local ingredients where possible, including meat from our local butcher.
The vast majority of our children have a school meal everyday. In December 2015, we received a letter from the County School Meals adviser congratulating us on being one of the highest percentage uptakes of school meals in the county.
Knowing that some children can be particular about their food, pupils are able to choose on a day to day basis whether or not they are having a school meal. All Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils are entitled to a free school meal every day.
Since we opened our own kitchens and supplied our own catering staff in 2005, the price of a school lunch has remained at £1.85 – no increase in cost for 12 years!!! However, as our outgoing costs have increased a great deal – food costs, staffing, energy etc we find that we now need to raise the cost of school lunches to £2 per child. This will begin in September 2017. Those children in Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 at that time will continue to receive their lunches for free.
Meals must be paid for in advance at the school office. Cheques should be made payable to Stanley Drapkin Primary School. Alternatively parents can now pay for school lunches via Parentmail +Pay if they are registered.
