School Meals

23/24 Lunch Menu

Our school kitchen is operated by Trafford Catering Services. Menus are set by Trafford and rotate on a three-weekly cycle. Please click on the links below for a copy of the menu, and the weekly menu rotation schedule.

Please note that the menu may be subject to minor change at the start of the Autumn term, once we have assessed how the menu is received. The menu was last updated on the website on 13/12/23.

23/24 School Meal Prices


The cost of a school meal for the 23/24 academic year is £2.45, which equates to £12.25 per week. Please see below for a breakdown for each of the three terms.


Advance or regular payments should be made in to your child's ParentPay meal account to ensure that there is a credit balance at all times. If your account reaches an arrears level of £20, your child will be moved to packed lunches until such time as the account balance is settled up. Thank you for your support on this.

Free School Meals

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 qualify for Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM), entitling them to a free hot meal provided by School. If you prefer your child to bring a packed lunch, this must be brought in from home and there is no School provision for sandwiches. Please note that packed lunches are not covered under the Government-funded UIFSM scheme.


Some families with children from Year 3 upwards are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). Even if you have not previously been eligible, if you have had a change in circumstances you may wish to check if you are now entitled to receive this support.


Please NoteFamilies with children in Early Years or KS1 may also be eligible for FSM, even though they would be in receipt of UIFSM. We encourage all families to check their eligibility and apply for FSM as the School receives additional funding for all eligible children throughout their entire primary school journey.


More information is available at:


You can also apply to check your eligibility for FSM at:


Subject to maximum income thresholds, anyone who is a British National (Overseas) (BN(O)) and/or with no recourse to public funds is also eligible to apply for Free School Meals. Please contact the School Office for the application form.

Meal Arrangements


If you wish to change your child's meal arrangements (from School meals to packed lunches, or vice versa), we require one full week's notice. Please contact the School Office on 0161 973 7350 or .
