School Meals

The majority of our pupils, and staff too, enjoy a hot two-course school lunch each day.

We encourage all children to have a healthy school meal, cooked in our  kitchen, rather than bring a packed lunch from home. Meals cost £2.40 per day (£12 a week) and needs to be paid online via the Arbor Parent Portal or Arbor App under 'Meals'. 

We are on a 3 week rota, starting with Week 1 on wkc 31st August 2020. 

For the menu for this term, please click here and here for the vegetarian menu. 

Please find a help guide on one of the drop downs below on making payments via the Arbor Parent Portal or App. 

Free School Lunches
