We encourage all pupils to eat school dinners if possible. These are nutritionally balanced and a range of dietary requirements can be provided for.

We also operate a cashless meal service whereby pupils do not need to carry cash for meals. For further information click here.

Notice From Pembrokeshire County Council:

“School meals are provided by Pembrokeshire County Council’s Catering Division. All menus meet the National Assembly for Wales Nutritional Guidelines and provide over a third of the body’s daily nutritional and energy requirements, which assist pupils in maintaining alertness in class. Pupils also derive social benefits from eating and relaxing with friends.

The service works with suppliers to ensure that all ingredients meet the highest standard, with no harmful additives. Menu cycles change twice a year and are displayed in schools . All special dietary requirements, e.g. vegetarian, diabetic, milk or nut intolerance can be catered for upon written request from parents/guardians.”

Free School Meals

Free school meals are a right if your circumstances necessitate. If you feel you may be eligible please ask the school for details and application forms. The school catering service provides very good lunches, prepared and cooked on the premises and children are encouraged to take school lunches which can be liquidized if necessary.

Free Milk

 

Through the Pembrokeshire County Council School Milk Scheme, children under the age of seven can, if they

wish, receive 1/3 pint of free milk per day. Although there are some nutritional benefits, some pupils are allergic

to cow’s milk or suffer lactose intolerance. In this case, children should not drink cow’s milk.
