These are cooked at Scott Primary School and delivered to the school by Caterlink in ‘stay hot’ containers by taxi. Parents of Wrens and Robins pupils can tell the class teacher each morning at the school gate what meal their child would like. Children in Swallows, Kingfishers and Kestrels classes make their choice at registration time. If your child is going to be late into school, for example if they have an appointment to go to, and they would like to have a school dinner on that day, please telephone the School Office on 01234 771316 no later than 9.20am to place your order.
The dinner lady who serves the lunches to the children at 12.00pm every day is employed by Caterlink. The cost for a child's lunch is currently as follows:
All meals must be paid for in advance, before the meals are taken. Caterlink will send reminders of monies owed, but payment should be given on the day or in advance.
Caterlink do not offer a credit service.
Please send dinner money in a sealed envelope with your child’s name and class on the front to ensure that your child will receive a meal. You may pay daily, weekly, monthly or half termly. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Caterlink’. Envelopes for your payment are available from the office.
If you would like to check if your child may be eligible for Free School Meals you can collect an information sheet and form from the school office. The school receives additional funding for all children who are eligible to claim for Free School Meals (£600 this school year). We can use this funding for your child’s school activities, trips and other individually designed programmes but the school only receive this funding if you actually register your child for Free School Meals. Your child does not have to take the school meal every day to qualify for the funding.
