Since Easter 2012 a number of DLP Primary Schools including Gatehouse have been working closely with ISS to provide a really attractive meal option for children. 


School Meals                                   

 The current cost of a school meal is £2.30.  School dinners can be purchased online via and is the preferred method of payment.  The office staff can go through the system with you. We are a cashless school from September 2017.


Cheques should be made payable to THE FIRST FEDERATION TRUST


Also a lockable payment box is in the school office near the main entrance, where all payments can be slipped into. Please remember to put all monies into a sealed envelope with your child’s name clearly marked on the front and details of what the payment relates to.


We are a cashless school so please pay online, cash and cheques will be taken as a last resort.


A menu is pinned up by the kitchen hatch in the hall, displayed in the school and we also have spare copies in the main reception area.


If you are in receipt of Income Support, Income Based Jobseekers Allowance or Child Tax Credit (not Working Tax Credit) where the family income is less than £16,190 per annum your child is eligible for free school meals, so please register your child. Even if your child has a packed lunch and only occasionally requires a school dinner please make sure that you register with us.  Forms are available at the school office.
