Taylor Shaw invigorate 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.

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.

Free School Meals – How can parents apply?

It is vital that all parents that qualify for free school meals still register their child with the local authority, even if they already receive Infant Free School Meals.  The additional funding means that these children can benefit from additional school support.  Please follow the link on Stockport MBC’s  to see if you qualify.  

Healthy Snacks

Schools play an important role in supporting the health and wellbeing of children and young people.  Our school aims to develop an ethos and environment that promotes the health and wellbeing of all.  As a school with ‘Healthy School Status’, please can we remind parents to provide healthy playtime snacks for their children.  To encourage a healthier option rather than filling up on crisps, cakes, chocolate items or sweets perhaps try offering a muesli and yogurt bar, toasted crumpet or teacake, fresh fruit, low fat yogurt or fromage frais, seeds or dried fruit, cheese and crackers, oatcakes or breadsticks.

Please note – Due to allergies, Mellor Primary is a nut free school.
