School Meals

Hot School Meals

All school dinners are booked using school gateway. They must be booked a minimum of a whole week beforehand.  For example, for meals for the week beginning Monday 15 November, choices for Monday – Friday must have been made by Friday 5 November. 

Although the system will allow you to book meals after this date, due to the ordering requirements of Cleverchefs’ it will not be possible for us to process these orders and your child will not receive a school lunch.

If you wish, you can book meals as far in advance as are listed. 

  • Simply log into your School Gateway account, select your child’s name, select ‘lunch money’ and click on the blue box that says ‘Make or View Meal Bookings’.
  • Please note that dinners must be paid for at the point of booking (unless you get free school meals)

Please find below a parent guide on how to select meals and where appropriate how to pay for them. 

We are now able to offer school dinners to all children in the school, including KS2.

Should you have any queries regarding hot school dinners please contact Ms Glover in the office who will be happy to help you. The email address is: 


Please be aware that St Nicholas is a Nut Free school and we would ask you to consider this when you provide your child with snacks and packed lunches - Thank you
