At Sythwood we believe that a healthy balanced diet plays a huge part in our children's ability to arrive in the classroom ready to learn. Our caterers, Twelve15, provide a varied menu each week, including a jacket potato option for children from year 2 to year 6, and a salad bar. The current menu is available to download at the bottom of this page.
Under the Governement's Universal Free School Meal scheme all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to daily free school meals.
The cost of a meal in Nursery and Years 3 to 6 from 1st April 2023 is £2.70 per day, £13.50 per week per child.
Parents of children in Nursery and Years 3 to 6 who choose to have school meals must pay in advance. Please kindly remember to keep your online dinner money account in credit. Payments are to be made through the school’s Scopay online payment system at www.scopay.com.
If you do not have a Scopay online payment account, please contact the school office for a registration letter.
