Our school meals are provided by ISS Education.
Paying for School Meals
Payment must be paid in advance as ISS does not offer any credit facility. You can choose to pay online or by cash or cheque (£2.25).
- Pay online - To register to pay online, visit www.feedinghungryminds.co.uk and complete the registration form. Once you've registered to you will receive two email confirmations: one to confirm your registration; one to confirm the accounts activation and your ability to make payments into it. You pay for your child's lunch online via Cypad, the online payment system. Select 'West Berkshire' and the link will take you direct to the secure website. Once your account has credit, you will be able to order your child’s meals online or they will be able to place their order electronically in the classroom.
- Pay by cash or cheque - To pay by cash or cheque, please ensure that payment is placed in an envelope, clearly marked with your child's full name, class and the amount enclosed, and hand it to the school office. Cheques should be made payable to ISS Education and have your child's name and class written on its reverse.

Free School Meals
All children up to the end of Year 2 are entitled to Free School Meals under the Government’s Universal Free School Meal Initiative.
Any family in receipt of specific benefits are encouraged to apply for Free School Meals in addition to this as it means that the school receive additional funding to support the learning of these children.
Special Dietary Requirements
Some children may have specific dietary needs (e.g. for medical or religious reasons). If this is the case, please contact the school office.
As a school we promote Healthy Lifestyles, and as such we encourage the children to eat healthily whilst in school. Children are not permitted to bring sweets in packed lunches. All children may have a piece of fruit during morning break, for EYFS and Infants this is provided. Due to allergies, we are a nut-free school.
