School Meals

Here at WJS, we are committed to providing the children with a balanced approach to eating healthily.

School meals are provided at lunchtimes at a fee of £3.00 per dinner (from 30th October 2023). They are provided by the leading school caterers, Chartwells.

Payment needs to be made online through ParentPay. Login details are provided by the school.

We feel that it is important that lunch is a social time for all the children so everyone eats their lunch together.  They can sit next to their friends whether they have a school dinner or bring their own lunch.

Lower School have lunch from 12:30 to 12:55.

Upper School have lunch from 13:00 to 13:25.

Children can have a school dinner (or a packed lunch provided by the kitchen) whenever they like. The children choose their lunch in class at the beginning of the day.

If your child is under 19 and in full-time education, you may be able to get free school meals for them. The quickest and easiest way to apply for school meals is to apply online.
