Children may bring a packed lunch and drink to eat in our dining hall. We ask parents to pack this in a plastic box, clearly marked with the child’s name. As with most schools, we do have some children at Morley with nut allergies. An allergic reaction for these children can prove to be very dangerous. In support of them, therefore, we ask that packed lunches or snacks do not contain nuts or peanuts (including peanut butter). To help preserve the condition of our wooden floor in the hall, we would ask that any wax covers of cheese items are removed before the cheese is brought into school.
School dinners are cooked on the premises and children are able to choose from a varied menu, including items for special diets such as vegetarian. We operate a three week menu system, with a different weekly menu being offered over the 3 week period. This is our menu:
Week 1 – Special Dietary Requirements – tbc
Week 2 – Special Dietary Requirements – tbc
Week 3 – Special Dietary Requirements – tbc
How to pay
School meals must be paid for in advance on a weekly, half-termly or termly basis.
ParentPay is our preferred method of making payments to school.
Cheques should be made payable to Morley Memorial Primary School. Money should be sent to school in an envelope bearing the child’s name, the teacher’s name, the amount of money enclosed and the days your child will be staying to lunch. Envelopes should be handed in to the class teacher who will send them to the office. If you have any queries about payment for meals please see the office staff. Queries about arrangements for taking meals or about the meals themselves should be directed to the headteacher in the first instance.
The cost for a single meal is £2.40
