At West Hill we are fortunate to have our own kitchen on the school site. Hot meals are freshly prepared each day and are paid for at least weekly. The daily cost of a school lunch is £2.15.
If paying for school lunches weekly, payment MUST be made in advance on a MONDAY. Payment is online only through www.schoolmoney.co.uk. To log in you will need to make sure that we have your up to date contact details and then you will receive a password by text.
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to free school meals.. If you have children in Nursery or children in Year 3-6 and you think you are entitled to free school meals, please complete the form below and contact the office who will advise you of the procedure for applying.
Children may bring packed lunches from home. We do not allow nuts or products containing nuts, fizzy drinks, juices, glass bottles, or sweets. All of the classes sit together for lunch in the main dining hall. The younger children in reception have their lunch first followed by Key Stage 1. After they have finished, Key Stage 2 have lunch together sitting in class groups and with friends. The children in the nursery eat their lunch in their classroom. If your child wishes to change from school dinners to packed lunch or vice versa, parents must give half a terms written notice.

Since February 2015, to comply with new Department of Education regulations we have been providing a milk scheme administered by Cool Milk which offers a 189ml portion of semi skimmed milk to all pupils in the school.
The milk is delivered every morning by Dairy Crest and comes in a carton with a straw and is stored in a fridge provided by Cool Milk until it is given to the children.
It is free to all children under 5 years old and to children who receive statutory Free School Meals.
For all other children it is available at a cost of 22p per day.
If you would like your child to have milk you must register with Cool Milk.
If you are unable to register online you can complete a registration form and this must be sent back to Cool Milk. Do not return these to the school office.
If you register online you can make payments immediately or you will receive a payment request within 2 days.
You can pay Cool Milk either online, over the phone, at a local PayPoint or by cheque.
Please pay by Tuesday 5pm for your child’s milk to start the following week.
