Lunchtime is a very important part of the whole school day but it isn't just about the food they eat. Children also learn how to behave in a dining area, how to interact with their friends and try foods they might not have at home.
Derbyshire County Council caterers cook school dinners daily in our school kitchens using fresh, local produce to provide a healthy and delicious range of dishes.
We use a cashless system called ParentPay to pay for school dinners, school trips, activities and to book places for school events and performances. Dinner money remains at the below prices.
Primary School - £2.30 (£11.50 per week)
High School - £2.45 (£12.25 per week)
Weekly menus provided by Derbyshire County Council have been planned to offer choice and variety for your child. We provide hot specials of the day, supported by fresh vegetables or salad, a vegetarian choice, hot and cold desserts, snacks and sandwiches.
