Chartwells School Lunches at Alway Primary

Chartwells provide the school lunches in many Newport Schools. 


All meals are to be booked through Parent Pay, including those eligible for Free School Meals (those in receipt of specific benefits). 


All primary school children in Wales can have a free school meal provided by the Welsh Government in their response to the rising cost-of-living pressures on families and tackling child poverty and ensuring no child goes hungry in school.


This is not linked to the FSM support available for those that qualify through certain benefits.


If you do not have parent pay account, you can’t order a school meal, please contact the office for an activation letter.


You must make a booking before 8am on the day as Chartwells cook hot meals to order.  You can book meals 3 weeks in advance.  (Insert link)
