Meals are provided at lunchtime for all children wishing to order a hot meal or school packed lunch in school. During Covid restrictions pupils will eat in their classroom. The cost of a primary school meal is £2.15.
Payments for school meals can be made electronically either on-line or via a Pay Point outlet in the local area.
Upon registering your child for school at St. Andrew’s you will receive an activation letter with a user name, password and guidance notes. You will then be able to set up your account.
If you are unable to access online facilities, please contact the school and we will issue you with a bar code to take to a Pay Point outlet.
Children wishing to bring a packed lunch from home may do so. The Welsh Assembly document ‘Appetite for Life’ asks Parents to support the ‘Healthy Lunch Box’ initiative by sending a sensible packed lunch into school with their child. This initiative reflects our school healthy eating policy led by our School Council which encourages parents to include in a lunch box a piece of fruit and at most, just one small chocolate bar.

School milk is served free of charge to all infant children at breaktime.
Pupils are encouraged to bring flavoured water or fruit juice drinks at lunchtime rather than fizzy drinks or squash. A drink of water can be provided to any child who requests it.
Please remember to label lunchboxes/bags as many other children may have an identical box /bag!
Children are supervised at lunchtime by their own class midday supervisor or a Teaching Assistant. They are taught a variety of playground games and use outdoor playground equipment during the lunchtime play period.
Fruit Snack at Playtime
In an effort to encourage children to eat sensibly and as part of our ‘Healthy School’ policy we ask that parents to please send a small piece of fruit for children to eat during playtime. Only Fruit or vegetables are allowed to be eaten as a playtime snack in school.
