School Meals

CH&co. is the School's catering provider for our pupil meals. They offer healthy menus that are fully compliant with the School Food Standards.  TWO meal options are available daily for every child.

EVERY child's meal will need to be ordered ONLINE via the CH&co. parent portal, this is regardless of whether you pay for a school meal or are eligible for Free School Meals or Universal Free School Meals.

A school meal costs £2.55 per day (which equates to £12.75 for the week). All orders (& payments, if applicable) need to be made in advance and no later than 8am on the Monday, for that week.

If you only require a school dinner for a particular day(s), i.e. a Wednesday and Friday, once you are logged in you select your individual day(s) on the calendar and order for those meals that you require. ALL ORDERS for meals MUST be made in advance, by 8am

If your child registers for a school meal and payment has not been made in advance you will be contacted by the school office by telephone, Weduc or text and asked to make an online payment or provide your child with a packed lunch.

If at any time you would like to change the type of meal your child has, i.e. from hot meal to a cold meal option, or vice versa, please contact the school office or email  


Do you know if you are eligible for a free school meal?  If you are, or if you are unsure, please complete the Free School Meals Form on the KCC website.  The application is processed instantly and you will be notified immediately if you are/ are not eligible.

If you need any assistance or have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school office or email
