School Meals, Milk and Snacks

If children eat better, they feel better, play better and work better. At Poulton Lancelyn Primary School, our healthy eating policy is carefully designed to ensure all children enjoy access to a nutritional and carefully balanced diet whilst on school premises.


Our suppliers – Taylor Shaw Catering Services - are a North-West based company who pride themselves on providing a consistently high standard of fresh food, fresh cooking, and craft trained catering teams, offering exceptional service. They use fresh, sustainable, locally procured ingredients, freshly prepared on site, giving parents and the school the peace of mind that children can have a healthy meal at lunchtime.


Taylor Shaw run themed food days throughout the year and for children not eligible for Free School Meals, these meals are charged at the normal rate of £2.41.


All children in F2, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for Universal Free School Meals.

If your child has moved up to Year 3 they will no longer be eligible for Universal infant free school meals and therefore you will need to advise us if they will require a school lunch.

Each meal will cost £2.41 and our preferred method of payment is Parent Pay”.  If you do not have login details, please contact the school office.

Please remember to inform the school office of any changes to your child’s meal pattern to ensure that you are not charged.



If your child is in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM)  please inform the school office.

If you have any questions or think that your child may be eligible for FSM – please contact Wirral Borough Council for more information.
