Surrey Commercial Services provide a school meals service to Surrey schools. Their website My School Lunch features sample menus, tips on healthy eating, job opportunities and contact details.
You can pay for school meals online. The current price is £2.00 per meal in Primary Schools. In Secondary Schools the cost is £2.05 for a two course meal.
Some schools use our website to collect payments from parents. Check the drop down list on the school meals payment page to see if your child's school is one of these. Guidance notes are available for parents paying online. Payment in this way will end in July 2013 and schools are being encouraged to collect dinner money via their own websites.
If your child's school is not listed in the drop down please visit your schools website to pay there.
You should apply to your child's school for free school meals.
The Citizen's Advice Bureau also offers information and advice about claiming free school meals and milk. If you are pregnant or have a child under four years old you could get Healthy Start vouchers to help buy milk or basic foods.
The School Food Trust website was established by the Department for Education and Skills in September 2005. Its remit is to transform school food and food skills, promote the education and health of children and young people and improve the quality of food in schools.
The Surrey County Council web pages, via which parents currently pay for school meals, will close from July 2013. By this time most schools will have chosen a supplier to collect meal money online through the schools website. Please visit schools pay online pages for more information.
From April 2013 a new portal is being launched for schools to upload their school meal data.
You can also visit Babcock 4S for more information about the support they provide to schools on behalf of Surrey.
