Meals for children are provided via the Hampshire County Council Catering Services (HC3S) and served from the school kitchen in the Hall. From September 2019, school meals in Hampshire cost £2.40 each.
If you would like to arrange for your child to have school meals, either for a short period, or longer term, please ask for further information at Reception.
Please remember that the school does not offer a credit facility for school meals and we expect meals to be paid for in advance.
Outstanding meal debts will be dealt with initially by the school and those outstanding for a long period and / or of a significant amount will be referred to Hampshire County Debt Collection Services.
If you are having trouble paying for school lunches, please check whether you qualify for free school meals and speak to the office about a payment plan to reducing your outstanding debt.
