School meals are cooked on the premises and are available for those wishing their child to have one. We are very proud of the quality of meals available and of the consistently high hygiene rating:
The school operates a choice menu. Menu slips are sent home on Friday for completion and return by Wednesday for meals to be taken the following week.
Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free meal under the Universal Infant Free School Meal scheme. Meals for children in Year 3 and Year 4 currently cost £2.20 each. Dinner money is payable in advance when returning the menu slip. It is helpful if the correct money is sent in a named envelope or purse. It is possible to pay for half a term or a term at one go. Please see the school office for details. Cheques should be made payable to Dunster First School. Meals must be paid for in advance.
Parents not wishing their child to have school dinners will have to provide their child with a packed lunch.
Please note: Currently the main meal option is supplied by an external provider, whilst our Head Chef, Ms Masters, is on personal leave. We appreciate your support and understanding at this challenging time, as many staff have had to be adaptable to support the smooth running of lunchtime.
I am sure many of you will join me in wishing Duncan Masters a rapid recovery and our thoughts are with their family.
