School meals cost £2.00 so where possible parents/carers are encouraged to pay weekly (£10.00), half termly or termly in advance. Correct money should be placed in a sealed envelope with your child’s name, class and the amount written on it.
Cheques should be made payable to “St Charles RC Primary School.”
The only day your children can opt in or out of a school dinner is on a Friday. If your child is having a school dinner on a Friday only, please pay a minimum of half termly.
If your child is absent or going to be absent e.g. for a medical appointment you must let the office know by 9.15am on the day of absence or you will be charged for your child’s meal (where applicable), to avoid wastage.
If you decide to switch your child’s meal pattern from a packed lunch to a school dinner or vice versa, please let the office know at least two weeks in advance in writing. Again, this is so accurate numbers can be given to the kitchen and to ensure you are charged (where applicable) appropriately. Spot checks during the lunch period are being introduced and payment will be required for children eating a school meal.
