St Joseph's Catholic Primary School


School Meals 

Hot meals are available to order for all children.   Meals are free of charge for all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 or at a cost of £2.50 for children in Years 3 - 6.  All children are offered water with their lunch.

If your child has a food intolerance, please make sure you have emailed the school office with details -

Children may also bring a packed lunch if they prefer, however fizzy drinks or sweets may not be included in their packed lunch.

We are a nut free school so ask that no products containing nuts are brought to school please.


Bookings and Payments

All hot meals need to be ordered and paid for in advance using our online booking system, Parentpay.  If you have not yet registered for Parentpay, please contact the school office for your activation code.

If your child is entitled to free meals, you will still need to book their meals on Parentpay.

The deadline for booking hot meals is midnight on Monday for the following week's bookings.  You can book up to the end of the current half term if you prefer, rather than booking weekly.
