Primary school meals
For just £2.50 per day, primary pupils receive a two course main meal to include a vegetarian option and a dessert. Fresh Fruit and drinking water is also readily available in all schools. Our menu cycles run on a 3 week rotational basis which are changed twice a year in May and October to allow for seasonal variances.
School meals must be paid in advance, payment can be made on a weekly, fortnightly or termly basis either by cheque (payable to Carmarthenshire County Council) or by cash. Over the next two years we will be introducing online payments for school meals using ParentPay. If your school is using ParentPay you will receive a letter explaining how to activate your account. If you are a low income household you may be eligible for free school meals.
All of our menus comply with Healthy Eating in Schools (Nutritional Standards and Requirements) (Wales) Regulations 2013 which became legislative in September 2013. These food regulations are designed to reduce the amount of fat, sugar and salt served in school food. By carefully sourcing reduced fat and/or salt ingredients and adopting good practices such as oven baking and steaming, we can continue to provide pupils with traditional favourite dishes such as traditional roast dinners, Homemade Curry and Rice and a variety of Pasta dishes and desserts to include Homemade Sponge and Custard and Rice Pudding.
