We are fortunate to have a hot dinners service at St Martin at Shouldham, provided by Shouldham Community Enterprises.
The lunches are prepared in the village hall, and transported to us in insulated containers. Menus are changed regularly, and rotate on a three week cycle. Meals to celebrate special events are also offered.
A vegetarian option is available every day, and we also offer an option of jacket potato, beans and cheese every day.
Pupils can choose to have hot dinners on a daily basis. We request that you pay for these online - please contact the school office for advice on how to do this. If you wish to pay by cash or cheque, please ensure that payment is sent to school in an envelope detailing the child's name and class. If payment is by cheque, please ensure the child's name is written on the back of the cheque including a description of what the payment is for, i.e. 'dinners'. Thank you!

Children may bring a packed lunch to school. This should be clearly labelled with your child's name. We do not provide refrigeration facilities, and so we recommend the use of insulated lunch bags and ice packs, especially in the hot weather. Please try to ensure that the lunch your child brings to school is healthy and balanced, with no sweets or fizzy drinks. Drinks bottles/food containers should be unbreakable. As part of our committment to the environment, we encourage reusable containers that keeps packaging/rubbish to a minimum.
We do not dispose of rubbish/left overs at school, so that you can see what your child has eaten.
If you child does not bring a packed lunch to school, we will provide a school dinner that will require payment.
Some pupils will be eligible for free school meals. Click here to find details about eligibility, and to download an application form from the Norfolk County Council website. We ensure that this information is discretely applied at school.
Children are encouraged to drink throughout the day, and may bring a bottle of water to school. Healthy snacks at break time are encouraged. Fruit is provided for children in Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) and Key Stage 1.
