From September 2020, College Park School lunches will be provided by Harrison Catering who will provide the staff and supplies to prepare freshly made school meals on-site. We will provide a school menu to parents once this is made available to us.
A healthy diet is vital for pupils to thrive and we would like to share some resources for you to help maintain a balanced diet for your child/ren. Change for Life is part of an initiative from the NHS to provide information and resources for living a healthy lifestyle. Please find a link to their website below for more information:

Paid School Meals:
The school requests that payment for school meals is made in advance, weekly, every half-term or full term. (If there is a reason why this may not be possible, please contact the school office to discuss payment arrangements). We are encouraging parents/carers to may dinner money parents via our electronic system, ParentMail.
Payments can be made via ParentMail, or to the school office by cash or cheque (made payable to “College Park School”) and a receipt will be issued to you. Should your child be absent on a Monday of any week, payment may be made on the first day of return.
Please contact the school office if you need help with accessing your ParentMail account.
The cost of a school meal is:
£2.00 per day for Primary students, £10.00 per week
£2.05 per day for Secondary students, £10.05 per week
