Pen-Y-Bryn Primary School

Where children come first

School Meals


We serve a balanced 2 course meal and a cold drink for £2.60 per day (£13.00 per week). School meals are chosen and payable in advance through Parent Pay. Our menu operates on a three week cycle (menu is currently reduced due to Covid-19) to ensure that children receive a varied diet, and there is a vegetarian choice available each day.
