School Dinner Cost

The cost of a school meal for the current school year is £3.25 per day.  Payment for your child's meals can be made on the Arbor Parent Portal.  We ask that you keep your child's dinner money account topped-up wherever possible to avoid going into debt. 

 If you have not already registered for online payments and app messages please either:

  • download the Arbor app from your app store onto either your Android smart phone or iPhone. This will enable the school to send you messages for free.
  • You can also make payments online by visiting

If you have any problems registering or making payment please contact the school – we will be happy to help you. Arbor will give you details of meals taken and payment made including what you currently owe/how much credit you have.

School Dinner Flexibility

We are pleased to be able to offer the children the flexibility to have a school lunch or home packed lunch any day of the week.

During registration each day your child will be asked by their class teacher whether they require a school meal or if they have brought in packed lunch from home.  Please discuss the menu with your children at home, so that they are familiar with the choices on offer each day.
