School Meals

Lunches are freshly cooked for both sites each day for those who are able to partake. Dieticians and nurses are part of the team for our meal provision to ensure that food is appropriate for each child.


From September 2017 the cost of School Meals is £2.40 for Students or £12.00 per week payable to the school office on Mondays please or by using the new ParentMail App or a Paypoint.

From now we will be using +Pay on ParentMail – an online payment service which allows you to pay for school items quickly and easily on your smartphone, tablet or computer.


We will inform you about items you need to pay through ParentMail, and you will be able to pay electronically, using credit or debit cards as well as PayPal and PayPoint. For instance you will be able to pay for school meals , if needed, the current rates are £2.40 per day or £12.00 per week.


If you have an Android or Apple smartphone, we would highly recommend you download the free ParentMail App so that you can make easy, online payments on the go. To do this, simply search for “ParentMail” in your App store.


Please note, your bank statement will display either the school name or ParentMail, dependent on your payment method.


If you need any additional information or assistance, please use the help site: or please contact Amy Haynes or Michelle Small in the school office.

Free School Meals

You should only have to do this once (not each year) even if your circumstances change.


Please register, even if you do not think you will be entitled or your child does not eat a school meal, as JFK may get extra funding on behalf of your child which will help provide extra activities for them.

Juniper Ventures who provide all our school meals only use Halal produce.


We have received the following  


"I am writing to confirm that there is no supply chain with Russell Hume Ltd for meat products in any school where Juniper serves meals.


Meat supplier Russell Hume is currently at the centre of a massive probe after a surprise visit from Food Standards Agency officers uncovered hygiene and food safety failings at its sites. Juniper takes great care in ensuring all its suppliers are regularly visited and inspected to maintain the highest standards at all times"
