September 2020 - Please note that until further notice, school dinners will consist of a packed lunch. Monmouthshire Catering hope to return to cooked meals soon.
We provide healthy and nutritious meals. We continually work towards providing a good range of healthier meal choices to fulfil the nutritional requirements of growing and developing children.It is our aim to ensure that all pupils are provided with a healthy, nutritious meal and that vegetarians and those on special diets are also catered for. We work with local suppliers and national manufacturers to provide a healthy, nutritious meal for the young adults of the future.We are keen to adopt a ‘whole-school’ approach to food education: ensuring the support of parents/carers, teachers, catering staff, governors and the LEA.

Pupils – £2.45
Meals can be paid for using your online ParentPay account or PayPoint, available in local stores. We no longer accept cash payments in school. You can go to ParentPay via the link on our home page. A maximum of five credit meals may be granted per pupil, and parents will receive letters advising them of any money owed.
After five credits have been issued, parents will be required to make their own arrangements to provide their child with a lunchtime meal until the debt has been paid.
