School Meals


Special Dietary Requirements
Some children may have specific dietary needs (e.g. for medical or religious reasons). If this is the case, please contact the school office.

Paying for School Meals

The current cost is £2.10 per meal for Key Stage 2 children.  Payment is easy and must be paid in advance as Chartwells does not offer any credit facility. You can choose to pay online as detailed below:

Pay Online

It is very straight forward. Once you’ve registered to make online payments you will receive two email confirmations:

  1. to confirm your registration
  2. to confirm the account’s activation and your ability to make payments into it.

You pay for your child’s lunch online via ParentPay, the online payment system. Simply select “West Berkshire” and the link will take you direct to the secure website. Once your account has credit, you will be able to order your child’s meals online or they will be able to place their order electronically in the classroom.

Eligible for Free School Meals?

If you are in receipt of income support, income based job seekers allowance or some other credits and allowances, your child is entitled to receive a free school meal. The process is very straightforward.

Please register as the school receives additional resources based on the number of children eligible for free meals, which is to be spent specifically to help eligible children.

Packed Lunches

We have a Healthy School Policy and as such ask that packed lunches reflect this ethos. Therefore, please do not include fizzy or soft sugary drinks (water, milk or pure juices preferred) or sweets/chocolate based snacks in your child’s lunch box and think again before including salty snacks. Please also do not include nuts (or Peanut Butter) in your child’s lunch box as some school children have nut allergies.

School Milk

Pupils are entitled to free milk up to their fifth birthday.  If you wish to continue after your child’s 5th birthday, you may register and pay for the milk through Cool Milk.
