Orchard Head Junior, Infant & Nursery School

School Meals

At Orchard Head J I & N School, we recognise the importance of eating a healthy, balanced diet and how it affects a child's ability to learn effectively and achieve high standards in school. 

Our kitchen staff prepare a choice of meals on site every day, served cafeteria-style to our children. The meals are nutritious and balanced and, where possible, sourced locally.  A vegetarian menu is always available and special diets can be catered for.  Parents are welcome to contact school to arrange this.

Some meals are planned around key dates in the calendar, such as Valentine’s Day and Bonfire Night, or to celebrate local or national events.

Our current school meals provider is Chartwells.  Please click on the following links to access  website and to learn more about them:


The cost of a school meal is currently £2.00 per day (£10.00 per week) and we ask that this be paid at the beginning of each school week.

Dinner money must be paid online via www.schoolmoney.co.uk.  Alternatively, it may be paid by debit or credit card to the school office, either over the phone or in person.

Please note:  The parent/carer of any child whose arrears amount to the cash value of two weeks will be contacted and advised that until the arrears are cleared, their child will no longer be able to access school meals.
