School dinners are cooked fresh everyday by Mrs Nancy Thomas in the school kitchen. We are inspected regularly, as are all food premises, by Wrexham CBC Environmental Services and by WCBC Support Services to ensure that hygiene and quality control are always of the highest standard. At the last inspection we were awarded a rating of 5* by Wrexham Environmental Services.
Cost of School Meal
Foundation Phase: £11.50 per week (£2.30 per day)
Key Stage 2: £11.75 per week (£2.35 per day)
A cashless system is in place in our school and dinner money is the responsibility of the LA Catering department. The Cashless machine is located at the main entrance to the school. The catering service will not offer a pupil a lunch if there is a debt of more than 2 days.
You will be contacted and asked to provide a packed lunch.
We have a rolling 3 week menu with Week 1 being the first week after a school holiday. You can download the current menu from the County website in English or Cymraeg.
