Lunch Times

Welcome to the Lunch Times page.

Mrs Appleby and Mrs Bunten hope you enjoy your dinners!

Cost of School Lunches


You are welcome to pay for school dinners by the half term, monthly or weekly in advance:


  • 1 full week = £11.00 (£2.20 per day)
  • Please contact the office if you would like the cost for the half term.




The cost of a school meal is currently £2.20 per day.


Parents and carers can now pay for dinners and breakfast weekly or in advance online using the School Money website. The school can no longer accept cash/cheque payments. 


If your child has an appointment and they are going to be in school after 9.00am it is important that you inform us or a meal will not be ordered for your child and you will have to bring in a packed lunch.


Parents/carers who feel that their child may be entitled to a free meal, should call into the office or contact customer services at Blackburn or Darwen Town Halls.


Payment MUST be made for meals until notification of entitlement to free meals is received. Overpayments will be refunded if you have paid for meals while entitled to free meals.


This policy will be updated to take in to account any increase in the cost of a school meal.

Lunch is from 12.10 to 13.00 for KS2 pupils and 12.00 to 13.00 for KS1 pupils.


LCC will be our school dinner provider.


They are a very experienced school meals provider supplying approximately 50,000 school meals daily in 480 primary schools in Lancashire. They aim to provide nutritious and appealing lunches and influence children to make healthier choices. They have a number of ways in which they aim to do this:

  • Provide a 3 week lunch menu offering 2 choices plus a selection of jacket potatoes.
  • Fresh bread, salad, fruit and locally produced yoghurts available daily.
  • Fresh drinking water available daily.
  • A minimum of 75% of all menu items freshly prepared on site.
  • Meat of Farm Assured Red Tractor.
  • All fish products MSC certified.
  • Use a number of free range and organic products on our menus.
  • Currently hold the silver accreditation for the Soil Association Food for Life.
  • Hold Hospitality Assured accreditation for a ’World Class’ standard for Life.


The recommended price for school dinners is £2.30 however, we will be charging £2.20 (£11.00 a week) to make this more affordable. Payment for school dinners can be made online using the new School Money website.



Your child might choose to bring their own packed lunch in from home. The school operates a Healthy Schools Policy and asks all parents to support us in not sending in salty and sweet items in packed lunches or for break. 


All children in KS1 are entitled to a Universal Free School Meal. This means you will not need to pay for a school lunch if your child is in Reception, Class 1 or Class 2. However,please still apply for Benefit Free School Meals if you think you might be entitled to them, this will enable your child to be entitled to other benefits and also the school will receive funding which we can use to improve your child's education.


Morning Breaks

School provides milk and fruit each day for KS1 children (Infants) so there is no need for you to send in extra snacks.

KS2 children can bring in a healthy snack to eat during break times.
