School Meals

Meal Times

Breakfast is available before school from 8.00am until 8.40am

Morning Break - A variety of healthy foods are available.  Students entitled to free school meals receive free toast.

Lunchtime - The catering team work extremely hard to ensure that the meals provided are not only healthy and delicious but also meet the government’s food and nutrition based standards for school lunches.  Please click the link to see our Current Menu

Packed Lunches

Students may bring a packed lunch to school which they will eat in the dining hall. All students are encouraged to drink unflavoured still water to re-hydrate themselves. No energy/fizzy drinks are allowed in school. It is not the school’s policy to dictate to parents what the content of packed lunches should be but the importance of eating sensibly and healthily should not be understated.

Payment

Lathom High School is a cashless school.  Payment for breakfast, lunch, uniform, trips etc. is through Scopay  If you haven't set up a Scopay account please contact the school office.

Some families will qualify for free school meals. Please see below for more information.
