Hot School Meals
At St Mark's Church of England Primary School we run a rolling three week menu with three options each day, including Vegetarian and Dairy-Free options. All our meals our cooked in the school kitchen by our kitchen team.
All children in Reception, Years 1 & 2 are entitled to a free hot school meals, as are those children who are entitled to Free School Meals. This must be booked in advance using WisePay. For Years 3 and above meals can be purchased in advance using WisePay for the cost of £2.60 per meal.
Please book hot school meals on Wisepay by midnight on Tuesdays for the following week.
If you do not wish to order a hot school meal for your child, please ensure they come into school with a packed lunch. If you have not ordered a hot school meal for your child or provided a lunchbox then we will provide a meal for your child at the cost of £2.60. Should this occur more than once in the term an admin fee of £5 may also be applicable.
Every care has been taken to identify allergens in our menu from the 14 key groups as identified by the Food Standards Agency:
