Children may have a school lunch, bring in a packed lunch or go home to lunch.
School meals are cooked on the premises by Hertfordshire Catering Limited.
There is a daily choice of well-balanced hot meals catering for our cultural diversity. With effect from 1st April 2023 a school meal will cost £3.15 per day, £15.75 for the week. These meals should be paid for in advance on the first day of the school week (usually a Monday).

Payment for school meals should be made via the School Gateway (see Online Payments page for how to register with the School Gateway).
Free school meals are available to some families. Further information is available at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals
If you wish your child to bring in a packed lunch, he or she will need a lunch box clearly marked with their name and class. We ask that parents ensure that their child’s packed lunch does not contain sweets or biscuits. Sweets should not be brought into school as part of a meal or snack.
Children who go home for lunch must be collected by an adult and report to the office before they leave the building. They should return by 1pm and again report to the office.
