School Meals

“Chartwells” has been appointed to supply school dinners at Greengate Lane Academy from Monday 15th April 2019.

For pupils taking a school lunch the menus offer a good choice of meals. We would like to encourage parents and carers to sign up for Parent Pay where you will be able to choose your child’s meal at home.  Your child will still be able to order a meal in school which is appealing to young people.
For your information, the cost of a school dinner is still £2.25 per day (£11.25 per week) until the end of the term.  Children eligible for Free School Meals will not be charged; children in Reception/Year 1/Year 2 will be entitled to a free meal under the Universal Infant Free School Meal (UIFSM) Government initiative.

School Milk

Semi-skimmed school milk is provided free of charge to all children under the age of 5 years. Please contact the School Office if you wish your child to continue with milk once they reach their 5th birthday. All children aged 5 and over, who want milk need to order it. This is charged at 17p per day. Payment is required for each term, in advance. Children who are entitled to Free School Meals are also entitled to free milk and no payment is required. Children in Reception/Year 1/Year 2 will need to pay for milk once they are aged 5 and over.

Dinner Money

As managing cash is time consuming and expensive and in order to keep costs down, we are phasing out cash payments after Easter.

Your account

  • You only pay for the meals that your child actually takes even if that is only one meal per term.
  • If you pay by direct debit you will be advised by email the amount to be taken from your account two weeks before it actually comes out of your account. This advice will detail which of your children took a meal, on which date, and what dishes they chose.

Once the new system has been in place for a few weeks please send us your comments and any suggestions you may have for making it even better in the future.

All children are eligible for free school meals up to Year 2. If you believe you are eligible for free school meals thereafter please click here.
