Townfield Primary School has an 'in-house' catering service. This enables us to offer improved choice and bespoke menus to tempt young palates, offering food that is healthier both in content and preparation.
Our menu has been designed with the pupils and includes Nutritional Regulations. We have taken the children's favourite dishes and made them healthier by using fresh ingredients.
Our school dinners are priced at £2.00 per day and our fresh deli bar option is always available to children. School dinners can be paid via cheque or in cash at Main Reception or sent into school clearly marked in an envlope with your child, providing this amount is under £20. Please note school will not be held responsible for money that is not handed in directly to the school office. You can also make payments online via our parent app system. See below for further details.
Menus roll over every 3 weeks, starting with menu 1 on Monday 7th September 2020
Paying for school dinners online via our School Spider Parent App
All payments to school will be made via our new school app. Details of how to make payments can be found here
