St Marys CE Primary Lewisham

Dinners

We would like the children to make a firm, regular commitment to school dinners or packed lunch.

Children may only change their meal option half termly.

All pupils from Reception to Year 2 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals. However, the school would ask you to indicate your child’s choice as some children may prefer to bring a packed lunch.

If your child is in Year 3 to 6 and would like to have a school dinner, the cost is £2.30 per day (£11.50 per week). This must be sent in each Monday clearly marked with the child’s name and class in a sealed envelope. There is a box available in the reception area where envelopes can be dropped off to save you queuing up. If you prefer you may pay on a half termly basis. You can also pay by standing order -please fill out the downloadable form.

Packed Lunches

We encourage children to bring in healthy packed lunches. This can consist of sandwiches, pasta or a roll, along with healthy snack bars, fruit and a yoghurt. Children may also bring a suitable drink.

As part of our healthy eating practice, the school does not allow the following items as part of a child’s packed lunch:

* fizzy drink

* sports drinks

* chocolate or sweets

* large packets of biscuits

If you need any further guidance about healthy packed lunch please contact the school office or visit the following websites:
