School Lunch

At Whitefriars School we are proud to have our very own resident chef. Every day our chef and his team prepare fabulous school lunch for our pupils. Our lunches are prepared on site using fresh ingredients.

We encourage your child to purchase a main meal at lunchtime from our school. Your child will be able to choose from a variety of options, including meat and vegetarian. All the meat is halal. The cost is £2.40 per day and includes a main meal, a dessert and a salad.

Please pay in advance for meals using parent pay. Please log in using your username and password and you will be able to deposit funds into your child’s account. If you are unsure of your parent pay username or password, then please contact the school reception. Pupils will not be able to buy items from  our dining room without money on their account.

Pupils entitled to free school meals receive an allowance of £2.40 per day to purchase a main meal.  If pupils wish to purchase additional snacks or drinks then please top up your ParentPay account.

Schools receive additional funding for children who are entitled to free school meals and we use this money to the benefit of your child, i.e. to fund school trips, music tuition and receive free items of school uniform. We encourage you to claim your entitlement even if your child is currently in Reception to Year 2 as you could receive many additional benefits.

The Eligibility Checker is available on the following link free school meals eligibility checker and you will need your National Insurance Number and Date of Birth to apply. Please contact the school office if you need any assistance.

Alternatively your child may bring a packed lunch. Please can this contain healthy items only and not items with too much free sugar. Chocolate, sweets, fizzy drinks and energy drinks are not suitable for a packed lunch.
