School Meals and Packed Lunches

School Meals

The school kitchen produces attractive, varied and nutritious meals. The weekly menu is published in the Weekly News so you can see what your child will be eating in the coming week. School Council’s Task Force is currently working with Mr Lewin and the School’s Catering Manager on how to improve the lunchtime experience for all of our children – watch this space!

The cost is currently £11.00 per week (£2.20 per day). Payment must be made in advance and can be made half termly, monthly or weekly.

For more information about the meals and how to pay please contact Mrs Sarah Simpson in the school office on info@st-thomas.surrey.sch.uk.

You can pay on line at www.scopay.com/stthomas-pri . Payments made online for school meals will be forwarded via ‘WorldPay’ to; Commercial Services at Surrey County Council, Epsom Local Office, Town Hall, The Parade, Epsom, Surrey, KT18 5BY.  (Please note that your bank statement will display WWW.SURREYCC.GOV.UK for these payments). Or you can pay by cheque (made out to “Surrey County Council). Cheques should be sent in a sealed envelope marked “Dinner Money”, bearing the child’s name, class and the amount enclosed.

Credit is given for any absences authorised in advance, for sick days notified before 10am that day or for any school trips.  For safety reasons hot drinks, glass bottles and cans are not allowed.

Two weeks’ notice is required for a change from school meals to packed lunches.

The children are cared for by Lunchtime Supervisors, not teaching staff, at lunchtimes.

Packed Lunches
