School Dinners

North West company, Taylor Shaw, were appointed as Mellor’s school meal provider in September 2012. Taylor Shaw invigorated our school meals with a high quality service retaining the requirements of the 14 nutritional standard as well as increasing the percentage of fresh food and locally sourced produce – 85% of the meals are made from fresh food.

We continue to work with the company to review menus thus maintaining our high quality meals.

School meals are free daily for all infant children in classes Reception to Year 2. Please notify the school office if you would prefer to send your child to school with a packed lunch.

Unfortunately, Nursery aged children do not qualify at this time but are welcome to have a meal.  Please notify the office accordingly.

For children in Year 3 & above we are able to accommodate children who would like to have a school dinner on certain days of the week only with prior notification.

Any changes to school dinner arrangements still need to be communicated to school giving two weeks’ notice. Many thanks.

The cost per meal is £2.25.  The weekly charge is £11.25 or you can pay on a half-termly, termly or annual basis.

We now accept online payments for school meals via our provider Schoolcomms; follow the link to activate your online account: or for iPhone & android mobile phone users, download the app.
