Rockingham Primary School

At Rockingham we are committed to being an inclusive school, providing the best possible standard of education for every child.


Hot meals are available to order every day.

Food is provided by Caterlink and costs £2.30 per child/ per day.  Please see the menu attached below for further information about the choices available.

There is always a hot meal with meat and vegetarian options and accompanying side dishes, meat or vegetarian sandwiches and a pudding.

Water is always available.

Special diets are catered for if needed (please contact the kitchen ) via the school office.

All children’s meals must be booked via your parent pay account by midnight every Tuesday for the following week. This is very important so that our kitchen has accurate numbers to cook for. We ask that if you have not booked your child’s meals via your parent pay account that you send them in with a packed lunch.  


If your child has free school meals you still need to book on parent pay so that the kitchen numbers are correct. You should not be charged.    Please note that if your child is entitled to Free School Meals due to their age, you must still book your meals via parent pay so that the kitchen can prepare the exact number of meals required.



If you have already made your booking, no further action is required. Alternatively if you have any issues regarding setting up your parent pay please contact the school office.  For any other queries, please contact parent pay direct.
