School Meals

Our school meals are provided by AiP.  AiP support our schools by helping with the education of the children with regards to food, lifestyle and making healthy choices. AiP help promote a well-balanced diet whilst encouraging the children to try new things and to have fun with food!


AiP's aim with Food Smart is to deliver freshly prepared meals that exceed all nutritional standards. AiP only use local, fresh core ingredients including meat sourced from British farms, in-season vegetables and free range eggs. Aip uses the industry-recognised Saffron database to create compliant menus.


If you would like to order school meals for your child you will need to have a ParentPay account.  To set up an account please contact the school office on 01296 488331 or email us at


We will then create you a ParentPay activation letter.  When you have received your letter you will be able to set up your parent account ready to order meals online.


If you have any problems with ParentPay or ordering your meals please contact the school.  


All meals need to be ordered online! Regardless of whether your child is eligible for Universal Infant Free School Meals (Foundation - Year 2) or Free School Meals (FSM). 


** All meals are ordered a week in advance.  The deadline for ordering meals is midnight on a Wednesday the week before.**
