Our meals are cooked in our own kitchen and are to a very high standard. If your child wishes to have school dinners, the correct money should be sent in on a Monday morning for the coming week. The cost is £2.20 per day/£11.00 per week.
You can pay by cash or cheque (payable to Holy Family School). Please note we do not accept credit cards. School meals can be paid for weekly, monthly or termly but must be paid for in advance.
Free school meals are available for eligible children, please contact the School Office for any queries.

If your child wishes to bring a packed lunch there are a few points that we would like you to note:
Within the school we have several children who are allergic to nuts. We cannot as a school guarantee a nut free environment, however, we would urge you to ensure that lunch boxes are free of items that contain nuts (ie, no peanut butter or cereal bars containing nuts). It would also help if you could impress upon the children, as we do, not to share or exchange lunch items.
As a school we have "Healthy School" status. To ensure we conform to this, children are not permitted to bring sweets or chocolate bars as part of their lunch (although chocolate biscuits are permitted). Also lunch boxes should not contain fizzy drinks.
Finally, please ensure that packed lunches do contain items that your child likes to eat and we will encourage them to eat it all.
Budding Young Chefs Create Recipes For Charity
Dozens of buzzing young chefs across Kent have had their recipes chosen for a charity cookbook. A pupil in Year 3 was one of the recipes chosen by The Contract Dining company. They received hundreds of entries from across the country and eventually 41 were chosen for The Children's Choice Cook Book. A total of 5,000 copies of the books have been produced and the company hopes to sell them for £1 to raise £5000 for Demelza.
The children all enjoyed tasting the winners Chocolate and Cherry cake when he was invited to spend the morning with the kitchen manager cooking. The children all commented on the delicious dessert and said they wanted more!

Each month two children will be picked by their class teacher for doing something exceptional.
It will be a different focus each month. The children will enjoy a free school dinner at the golden table and will also be seated with an exciting visitor.
