School Meals AND MILK
We encourage all the children to have a freshly cooked meal each day; salads and fruit are always available.
The children have up to three menu choices each day and we cater for specific dietary requirements.
School lunches and meal choices can be ordered online at www.scopay.com/stjames-elstead. Parents are issued with a unique user code for access to this facility on their child's admission to school.
Please click on the relevant sub-page for details of the three-week rolling menu to enable you to make the best meal choice for your child.
The school can order a fixed pattern of meals for your child, whether this be every day or a part-time pattern. If you would like to order meals on an ad-hoc basis, please contact the school office for further information on how to do this.
You can order or amend meal choices up to midnight before a meal is taken. Please note that, if your child has a fixed pattern of meals pre-ordered by the school, you are unable to cancel these meals or amend their pattern through the child's Scopay account. In this instance, please email the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org to request this change or telephone before 9.15am if on the day. The fixed pattern will continue until you notify the school office otherwise.
Children can have a mixture of school lunches and packed lunches and school meals can be ordered before 9.15am on a school day.
Children choosing to have a packed lunch eat alongside the children eating a school meal and we encourage parents to ensure that packed lunches contain a healthy meal. Sweets, sugary drinks and glass containers are not permitted.
No nut products are permitted due to allergies within school.
