School Meals


At Great Denham, we are extremely proud that we cook our own meals fresh every day. Our fantastic team led by Mrs Marshalleck prepare and cook over 350 meals a day.  We are delighted to inform you that our kitchen has recently been rated 5-star for food standards hygiene!

Our menu can be found below.

School dinner bookings are made through ScoPay.  Payment for school dinners will need to be made at the time of booking your child’s meal.  Unfortunately, this means if no payment is received on ScoPay your child will not be entitled to a school lunch and you will be expected to provide a packed lunch.  Pupils in receipt of Free School Meals or children in Reception, Year 1 & 2 (Universal Infant Free School Meals) will be able to book with no upfront payment necessary.

Payment can also be made by Cash to the office prior to booking your child's meal on ScoPay.

Free School Meals however are income dependant and not only covers your child's meal each day but will mean the school will receive funding called Pupil Premium Funding which we will use to support your child in school as well as to support payments for trips and residentials etc. For more information on Pupil Premium click on the page called 'Pupil Premium' under the Statutory Information section.
