School Dinners

Last modified: September 15, 2017

Lunchtime Supervisors are responsible for supervision during the midday break, although there are always members of the teaching staff on the premises.

Drinks brought to school by children taking sandwiches should be in unbreakable containers for safety reasons. No fizzy drinks please.

For those children taking school lunch, dinner money should be paid weekly on Monday for those dinners to be taken during the week. The cost of school meals is £2.10 per day which is payable by cheque to Telford & Council or in cash. The dinner money should be brought to school in a sealed envelope with the child’s name clearly marked. Any absence is credited to you when your child returns.

For the current dinner menu and details about the online facility to pay for your child’s school dinners at http://www.telford.gov.uk/schoolmeals.

You need your child’s pupil reference number (available from the school office), and your debit card or credit card details ready when making a payment. They do not accept American Express or Diners Club.

You will be directed to a secure website to make the payment, with the option to print or email a receipt when the transaction has completed.
