Welcome Back to School, there are going to be a few changes to the school meals that will be provided from September and we would like to share with you what they are:

We will be offering a packed lunch menu from September until we can revert back to providing hot school meals again.   There is a Week 1 and a Week 2 Menu with an A and B Choice Option (Option B being a vegetarian option).  

As soon as we know exactly when we can revert back to providing hot school meals again we will let you all know by updating the website, putting out notifications via social media (facebook/twitter), e-mailing all Schools and including copies of the New Hot School Meals Menu.

What will the packed lunches look like?

Each packed lunch will contain a sandwich/roll/wrap or baguette, a snack (for example a slice of pizza or a pasty), vegetable sticks, a dessert and a drink. The packed lunches will be placed in paper lunch bags,  the bags will be labelled A or B .

If your child has any dietary requirements and would like a packed lunch at School please contact us on 01633 644150 or e-mail us CateringandCleaning@monmouthshire.gov.uk and we can arrange this for you.

School meals cost £2.50. Parents have welcomed the introduction of Parent Pay. A new online method to pay for school lunch. It is a quick and easy way for parents to pay for school dinners at any time of the day. A brilliant way to taking the stress out of looking for spare change to pay for lunch in the heady morning rush.

Special Dietary Menus

All you need to know 

  • Two courses for £2.50, that’s less than the cost of a high-street coffee.
  • Schools in Monmouthshire operate a variety of payment methods, which include daily, weekly, monthly or payment each term in advance. Please speak to your child’s school for further details.
  • Special diets are available, please speak to your school for further information.  Allergen sheets are available, however should you child have any special dietary needs please do not hesitate to contact us so as we can meet to discuss their needs.  A menu can be put together to suit your child’s individual requirements.

Parent Pay

Monmouthshire County Council has recently been involved in rolling out the ‘Parent Pay’ online payments system to all its primary schools.  This brings online payment systems up to date and ensure that citizens have the benefit of the latest technology when it comes to their child’s school life.  Parent accounts can be accessed via your smartphone, tablet or laptop, giving you the most up to date statement of payments into school from anywhere you have a signal. It will give you the chance to pay for school meals, trips and other items from the comfort of your home, whilst being safe knowing whether your child has had a hot lunch on any given day..  It reduces the impact on the environment and saves money on valuable resources that could be spent elsewhere by eliminating the need for letters in your child’s bag each week.
