Paying for School Meals
The current cost is £2.40 per meal for Key Stage 2 children. Payment is easy and meals must be paid for in advance via an online account. Dolce does not offer any credit facility.
It is very straight forward. The school will set up an online account for you and you will receive e-mail confirmation. Once this is received you can log in to add funds to your account and give details of any specific dietary needs (e.g. for medical or religious reasons).
Eligible for Free School Meals
If you are in receipt of income support, income based job seekers allowance or some other credits and allowances, your child is entitled to receive a free school meal. The process is very straightforward. Please contact West Berkshire Council on (01635) 551111 who will take you through the procedure or apply online at www.westberks.gov.uk.
Please register as the school receives additional resources based on the number of children eligible for free meals, which is to be spent specifically to help eligible children.
We have a Healthy School Policy and as such ask that packed lunches reflect this ethos. Therefore, please do not include fizzy or soft sugary drinks (water, milk or pure juices preferred) or sweets/chocolate based snacks in your child's lunch box and think again before including salty snacks. Please also do not include nuts (or Peanut Butter) in your child's lunch box as some school children have nut allergies.
Pupils are entitled to free milk up to their fifth birthday. If you wish to continue after your child's 5th birthday, you may register and pay for the milk through Cool Milk.
