School Dinners (during school closure - Coronavirus)

Thank you for using the website 'contact us' form to order your lunches each day. We have staff dedicated to checking this and informing Steve (Old Hall Cafe) about food orders. We hope that having the food delivered to you has been helpful. For us, it has allowed us to keep the number of people on-site to a minimum. 

We have decided to continue to offer school lunches during the next two weeks, even though this would usually be the Easter break. This includes offering free lunches to all children in Reception, Y1 and Y2 as well as those eligible for Free School Meals. Please continue to place your orders through the school website contact form (scroll to the bottom and click the drop-down menu and choose school dinners). We also offer the chance to purchase meals.

As you can imagine, the packaging and delivery of these meals has increased the cost to us to provide this service to you. Therefore the price of each paid meal will increase from £2.10 to £2.30 per meal.

To make our work more manageable during this time, we ask that you make a decision on your school dinner orders for a whole week at a time. Please let us know the following information on the contact form:

  • names of the children (so we know which meals are free and which are chargeable at £2.30) 
  • which days meal(s) are to be ordered for
  • how many meals to be ordered each day.

Please look at the menu below for what is on offer each day. Deadline for placing orders is 10am each Monday morning for the coming week. Earlier is much appreciated.
