We encourage children and parents to subscribe to school meals so that children can share a nutritious lunchtime experience with their peers. A weekly menu is displayed on the notice board in the office and in the junior hall.
We run a six month menu, which changes after every Easter and October half term holiday.

Special diets can be catered for, and drinking water is always available.
For Reception and Years 1 and 2, school meals are free. For Years 3 to 6, the cost of lunch is currently £2.80 per day and we ask parents to pay half termly, before the start of each half term.
All payments for school meals should be made online through the school’s payments system, SCO Pay. If for you are having trouble accessing the system, or you are unable to make a payment for whatever reason, please contact the school office for assistance. Where meal payments are outstanding, we are obliged to follow our Debt Recovery Policy, which can be found on our Policies page.
Children may bring their own packed lunch from home, which should be brought in a suitable container and should not include chocolate bars, sweets or canned drinks.
At Coleridge, we are aware that there are a number of children who suffer from allergies and we seek to ensure that all members of the school community are aware of the risks associated with some allergies and that steps are taken to avoid those risks. We ask parents not to give their children sandwiches or anything else in their packed lunch that contain nuts.
If children change from school dinners to packed lunch, or vice versa, we ask that parents inform the school office.
School milk is provided for free to all children under the age of 5 years. Subsidised milk is available for all children up to the age of 11 years, and can be ordered through our school milk provider, Cool Milk. For more information click here, and to order for children 5+, visit www.coolmilk.com.
