School Meals and Packed Lunches

At Dunstone our school meals are prepared on the school premises by our school cook, Rose Shepherd, and her catering team.

A copy of the school menu is sent out at the beginning of each term. If you need a copy it can also be found at

 We aim to provide a varied, balanced meal with a choice of four main courses including vegetables and a self-service salad bar. Yoghurt or fruit and a sweet are also available each day. A drink of milk, pure fruit juice and squash are provide for the children with their meal.

Payment for a school meal in Keystage 2 (Beech, Sycamore, Ash and Oak Class)  will be £2.00 per meal per day .   Payment is required through "Teachers to Parents" School Money system at . Parents can pay online or at a Pay Point - please contact the office for further details. PLEASE NOTE THE SCHOOL OFFICE NO LONGER COLLECTS CASH PAYMENTS.  

Since September 2014 all pupils in Keystage 1 (Willow, Rowan and Elm Class) are provided with a free cooked school lunch.  These meals are healthy and tasty and we encourage parents to take advantage of this new initiative which saves them £10 a week, the equivalent of £380 a year.
