Hot School Meals

Chartwells Logo

We are delighted to be providing hot school meals for the pupils at Merley First School and welcome your children to explore our exciting menu which has been specifically designed to cater for young children.

The Winter menu commences in September and will run until Easter. This will be published via the Meal Ordering website in July.  School meal orders can be placed via the Dorset Meal Selector


If you do not have access to the Internet, please contact Chartwells directly on 01202 691038 who will place your child’s meal orders on your behalf.

Children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 are automatically entitled to receive Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM). On average the saving of switching to school meals is approximately £400 per year. 

We recommend that you book meals for the whole term to ensure meals have been ordered without having to remember to book them on a weekly basis.  Please be aware that there are 3 options every day and the menu runs in a 3-week cycle, should your child prefer a different meal after trying what is booked for them, you can easily alter this on our website as long as it is in line with our cut off points.

If you have any questions or require any assistance, please contact us on 01202 691038 or
