School Meals

FREE SCHOOL MEALS will be offered to every child in Year R,1 & 2.


Dolce have been appointed to supply school dinners for Valentine Primary School from Monday 3rd May 2021, and are determined to offer you and your child an excellent service, ensuring every child enjoys their meal and has the energy to study and learn in the afternoon.
The cost of a school dinner will be £2.35 per day (£11.75 per week).

SchoolGrid Account
If you would like your child to have school meals, you will need a SchoolGrid account. You will receive an email from SchoolGrid, our software providers, with all of your necessary login details. By accessing SchoolGrid online you will be able to pre order meals, view recipes, allergens, ingredients and make payments.



Please find below information to help you with this change and hopefully answer any questions that we have been asked:


  • As from Monday 3rd May NO CASH PAYMENTS can be sent into school for children’s lunches.
  • All children’s SCHOOL MEALS WILL NEED TO BE PRE-ORDERED AND PRE-PAID through your school grid account.    
  • This includes ordering of meals for children who are entitled to Free School Meals and Universal Free School Meals 
  • Once you have received an email from School Grid (Dolce), you should be able to set up your new account where you will be able to view the menu, then pay for and pre-order your child’s meal choices. Families who are receiving Free School Meals will also be able to pre-order their child’s meal choices. Meal choices can be pre-ordered a number of weeks in advance.
