At East Wickham Primary, we are pleased to welcome Chartwells as our school catering providers. The menu is available below.
Chartwells provide an allergen aware menu for those children that require this. You will be required to provide medical evidence and complete Chartwells Medical Diet Request forms before meals are able to be provided to your children. This is to ensure a robust allergen process is in place to protect our pupils with allergy requirements. To identify the children that have medical diets we will be using the schools own system that will have a photo of your child and what they are not able to eat. Please only complete these forms if your child has any medical diet needs.
There is no requirement to pre book meals in advance your children will be asked during their morning registration, if they are a packed lunch or a school dinner and these will be marked in our registers for our catering teams and marked off against your online payment accounts.
School meals from September 2020 – July 2021 cost £2.20. Chartwells and the school request that meals are paid for in advance unless you are entitled to free school meals for your child. EYFS and KS 1 children continue to receive universal free school meals.
During these unprecedented times we welcome online payments through MCAS as this is a safer way of paying for everyone however cash payments will be accepted.
Chartwells look forward to welcoming your children in the dining hall. School meals help to support children’s development and improve concentration, behaviour, performance and encourage a healthy lifestyle, where all menus are in line with the nutritional standards.
If you require any further detail regarding our school meals, please contact the school office and we will point you in the direction of our catering teams.
All KS1 children get free school meals under the Universal Free School Meals scheme.
If your child is in KS2 and you wish for them to have a school dinner, it costs £11/week due every Monday. You can either pay via MCAS or by cash to the school office. If you wish to pay by cash, please ensure that you clearly write your child's name, class, the amount and 'school dinners' on the envelope. Thank you.
