School Meals

At St Bernadette's all meals are prepared on site in our school kitchen and there are a choice of nutritionally balanced healthy meals. Menus offer children the chance to have vegetables and fruit as part of their lunch.  School meals are available to all children. Free school meals are automatically given for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. 



Year 3 through to Year 6 have a cost for their school dinner of £2.80 per day, £14.00 per week. Payment for school meals should be made via Parentmail. We are unable to extend credit for any school dinners. Should dinner money become outstanding for payment, you will be requested to provide packed lunches for your child. To avoid mutual embarrassment please do not let this situation arise. 


Lunch from Home 

Parents do have the option for their child to bring in their own healthy packed lunch. We do ask that parents do not include nuts in the lunch from home, due to food allergies. 



If your child has a food allergy, please contact Mrs Dias in the school office to discuss. Contact number 01252 548123 or via
