New Menu! Summer 2022! 

TMBC have notified us that School Meals will increase in price from September 1st 2022 to £2.68 per day.

School meals must be paid online at the Tameside website here

School will send you reminders to pay for school meals but once the debt reaches £30.00 it will automatically be referred to the LA. Any outstanding payments that have been referred to Tameside will have to be paid to Tameside and not the school. 

Children may bring a packed lunch from home as an alternative to a cooked school meal, please provide a healthy balanced lunch for your child. We ask that you do not include fizzy drinks or cans, breakable containers, sweets or chocolate. Please ensure the lunch is in a lunch bag, clearly marked with name and class, and provide a spoon if necessary as there may not be one available.
