School Meals

The Dolce school catering team makes every effort to provide carefully balanced and nutritious meals each day and cooked meals are made on site and eaten in the dining area under the supervision of Midday Supervisory Assistants (MSA's) and teachers.


Parents and carers are able to use the page to book meals and make payment.  There are up to 3 choices each day including vegetarian, baguette bar and jacket potatoes.  Unlimited salad is also available.


Packed lunches need to be sent in an appropriate strong, named container. Please do not give the children drinks contained in cans or glass bottles. We ask parents and carers to ensure lunches are as healthy as possible. 


It is important that a decision to take either school dinners or to bring a packed lunch is made and kept to for our planning purposes. Please give two week's notice in writing if you would like to change the arrangement for your child's lunch.


Are you entitled to benefits?  If so, school may be missing out on additional income that could be due if you apply for FREE SCHOOL MEALS. (Please note; this is different to Universal Free School Meals for children up to the age of 7).  You can also do this even if your child would prefer to have a packed lunch.

To find out if you are eligible and apply online go to or telephone 01609 780 780. An application form for free school meals is attached at the bottom of this page.  



Children are offered a portion of fruit each day in Foundation and Key Stage 1 classes, as the school subscribes to the Government's 'Fruit and Vegetable Scheme'. For children in other years, you may wish to send in a mid-morning snack for break-time. We want to encourage our children to have good eating habits so please send in something healthy like a piece of fruit or a plain biscuit - do not send in sweets, chocolate items, crisps or nuts.
