School Lunches are freshly prepared on site daily. Caterlink are our catering company, under the RBWM contract. The lunches run a three week cycle and the menu changes 3 times a year for the autumn, spring and summer terms. The Menu is displayed in the Reception area, also sent home each term and can be downloaded from the School Website. There are also regular ‘special days’ to celebrate events and add further variety to the food on offer. All meals meet Government Standards for Healthy School Meals.
For the academic year 2016-17 the cost of a school lunch for pupils in Year 3 to Year 6 is £2.20 per child per day or £11.00 per child per week. Dinner money must be paid in advance by cash, cheque or online at www.scopay.com This Cashless Payments System is easy to use for all parties. A Link Code is sent to all parents. We look into expanding its use across the whole school.
The School Kitchen needs to know how many children will be having lunch before they place the weekly food order.
Lunches for the following week must therefore be ordered and paid for IN ADVANCE by 12.00noon every Friday. LATE ORDERS AND PAYMENTS CANNOT BE ACCEPTED. Parents have to prepare a packed lunch for their child/ren on the day. All cash payments should be in a sealed envelope with your child’s name on.
All children in EYFS and KS1 (Years R, 1 and 2) are entitled to Universal Free School Meals. Please register if you have not already done so – forms available from the School Office or can be downloaded from the School Website.

Healthy School Status
As a ‘Healthy School’ we encourage pupils and their parents / carers to take a responsible attitude towards the mid-day meal and abide by our rules. This means a lunchbox containing healthy, balanced food items, no chocolate or fizzy drinks and limited salty snacks such as crisps.
Pupils bringing their own packed lunches in are also welcome a drink of water to go with their meal.
Healthy Snacks for Break time – Fruit/Vegetables and Water.
Pupils are encouraged to bring in a snack for break time, comprising a simple, single piece of fruit (or small container of grapes or blueberries for example). Water bottles are encouraged in school and can be filled from the tap in each classroom.
Free School Meals
All the children in EYFS and KS1 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals. A family receiving income support from the Department of Health and Social Security is entitled to Free School Meals for their KS2 children. The school is able to provide the necessary form, or a family may write to the Director of Children’s Services and Childcare at the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
Children who bring packed lunches to school eat them in the school Dining Hall with the other children.
