School Values: Promotes Belief Creates Success

Platt Bridge Community School’s meals are provided by  Apetito and our in-house catering team.

Taster Sessions 

We offer an annual parent/carer taster session, which enables parents and carers to try the food and provides an opportunity for us to answer any questions you may have. During our annual taster sessions, we aim to provide parents and carers with information about who supplies our school meals for your children, the food sourcing process, and how delicious our lunchtime meals are.

Our next taster session is scheduled for 17:00 on Thursday, 23rd May 2024.

Healthy Eating 

Our school provides an environment that promotes healthy eating and drinking and enables pupils to make informed choices about the food and drink they eat.  Further information is available in our Whole School Food Policy Click Here

Registering for Free School Meals

Pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are ALL entitled to a free school meal through the Universal Infant Free School meal initiative. However, all parents entitled to benefits are encouraged to apply for free school meal funding as the school will benefit from Pupil Premium Funding which is in addition to the annual school’s budget. This funding helps school to fund various activities and provide additional educational support for pupils (see the Pupil Premium Statement on the school’s website).

If you are entitled to benefits, you must still register at the Life Centre or apply on-line by clicking here in order for the school to receive Pupil Premium Funding.

We are happy to support you with this process. Please refer to the separate leaflet about registering for Free School Meals.

Ordering System

  • Our meal ordering system is through ParentPay, our online payment system for other school charges. Through ParentPay parents can view the daily menu choices, place meal orders and pay for their child’s school meal in one place.  If you don’t currently have a ParentPay account please contact the school office for login details.
  • Pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 – These pupils are provided with a free school meal each day under the government’s universal infant free school meal scheme. Parents will need to access ParentPay to order their child’s daily meals, but there will be no charge.
  • Pupils in Year 3 to Year 6 – For these pupils, parents can choose whether their child has a school meal or brings a healthy packed lunch. If your child is having a school meal this will be ordered and paid for on ParentPay.  If your child is eligible for a free meal due to your household benefit entitlement you will order meals in the same way but there will be no charge.  If you would like more information about free meal eligibility please contact the school office.


School Meal Prices

  • The cost of a school daily meal deal is £1.50 for nursery pupils and £2.15 for pupils in school. This includes a main meal, dessert and drink plus optional daily salad bar and bread roll each day.
