School Meals

We are fortunate because all school meals are freshly cooked in school, using local suppliers where possible and following healthy living guidelines.  A high percentage of pupils regularly have school meals.  Children are welcome to choose either a school meal or bring sandwiches on a daily basis.

Booking System Alteration

As from Monday 29th April 2019 there will be a change to the way you book and pay for your child’s/children’s meal/drink. From this date, you will be need to log in to the same system you already use to pay for your school dinners to book and pay for your dinner options in advance. In order to have a school meal you must book and pay for your choice at the same time. If you have not booked / paid in advance your child will not have access to a meal and you must send them in with a packed lunch.

You will have until midnight the night before each school day to book your child’s meal but it cannot be booked and paid for on the day. You may choose to book and pay for dinners daily, weekly or termly in advance. If your child is off sick or doesn’t have a meal that you have already paid for due to unavoidable circumstances, your account will be amended and credit will be added to your account.

Fruit Break

We are a healthy eating school committed to encouraging our pupils to adopt a healthy lifestyle.  As part of this we encourage pupils to bring in fruit and offer a short break for them to eat this each morning.


Children have access to water throughout the day and we encourage them to drink regularly.  Other drinks are only allowed with Lunch, as to drink them frequently can cause tooth decay.



From 13th  December 2014, the EU Food Information for Consumers Regulations came into force. These European Rules will be enforced in the UK by the Food Information regulations 2014.

The EU lists 14 allergens that need to be identified if they are used as ingredients in a dish. This means that food business will now need to provide information about allergenic ingredients used in foods sold or provided by them.

All Cooks and Catering Managers have been trained in recent meetings about these changes and have been provided with an allergen manual to keep in the kitchen. Signage has also been provided to each kitchen for display at the service point requesting that anyone with an allergy or intolerance speaks to our staff before ordering.

Shropshire and Walsall  Primary Schools

Please follow the link below to the Shire Services website which details the 4 week allergen matrix for primary schools. This matrix lists all primary dishes and identifies which dishes have any of the 14 allergens as ingredients.   We strongly recommend that any parents of pupils with allergies or intolerances still contact the school cook to arrange a meeting to discuss their specific requirements.
