School Lunches

Our School Lunches are provided by Caterlink.

We are very fortunate at Clearwell C of E School as we have a fantastic onsite Catering Manager– Mrs Thomas (she produces delicious hot and cold meals every day with over 70% of the school taking a school lunch - and most of the staff).

Payment for school lunches can be made using the Parent Pay online system.   Please click here to pay online or contact Mrs Tarry if you are a new user and would like a password.

A copy of the School Meals Debt Policy is also available.

The current menu provided by Caterlink and is shared with parents on Edulink.  There may be some slight adjustments as Mrs Thomas knows if the children don’t like a particular option and offers something different. She also caters for individual dietary needs.

Our school milk scheme

Did you know our school provides a school milk scheme?
By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day.

“How much does it cost?”
Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsidised at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.

“Why should I register my child?”
School milk provides your child with essential nutrients. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.
