School Dinners

St Chad's school dinners are all cooked fresh, on site, by the school's catering team. We provide healthy and tasty meals for everyone. If your child has a dietary need, please contact the school office.

School dinners cost £2.20 per day (£11.00 per week) and are payable by using ParentPay. 

ParentPay is a secure online payment system. The school office will provide the details you need to set up an account. We ask that school dinners are paid at the begining of each week.

School Meals for Reception to Year 2 children are free. This is part of the Government initiative to provide all school children with a healthly meal.
