School Meals

img_3589We serve wonderful school meals daily here at Crudgington

Children eat their hot dinners alongside these who bring pack lunches.

School dinners need to be paid for online via Telford & Wrekin school meals payments. You will need to ask the school office for your childs pupil reference number (only those children in years 3,4,5 & 6 pay for school meals)

All children have access to water throughout lunchtime.

We also offer a sandwich choice option which needs to be pre booked, but is an alternative to the school hot meal.

Our Catering Team provide nutritious meals for the children and also occasionally have themed days.

The team cater for all children and ensure those with food intolerances/allergies are catered for.

We offer a meal option for children who are vegetarian, please inform the school if your child is a vegetarian and we will arrange for you to discuss your childs menu with the Catering team.
