School meals – students with insufficient funds

A reminder for parents and carers to ensure that students using the school meal facility have enough money on their account before they purchase a meal.  We have had a number of occurrences recently where students, particularly on a Friday lunchtime, arrive at the till with no or insufficient funds with which to purchase their meal.

If you are experiencing specific financial difficulty preventing your child from accessing the facility and are not currently in receipt of Free School Meals please contact us to discuss the matter.

As a school we continue to invest in the provision of food at the school and are proud of the quality offer we are able to provide at a very reasonable price.  Our everyday meal deal at £ 2.50* for a main meal, pudding and basic drink is excellent value for money and ensures your child gets well fed during their time with us.  We work hard with our catering provider to minimise price increases and this is something we have been very successful with over the past 5 years.

Providing funds for you child via our online Tucasi system helps ensure they spend the money you provide at the school and access to this appears on the front page of our website.

Should you currently not be utilising the facility at the school but would like to view the provision or discuss the service I am willing to meet parents to by appointment via my email at
