School meals

At Ricards Lodge we provide our students with a variety of hot and cold foods at a reasonable price via our catering partner Harrison. 

As a parent, you can now pay for your children(s) school meals online using the Catering Purse in Weduc

If you require any further information or have any feedback, please make contact with our Chef Manager on site who can be reached at 

Topping up dinner money

Students use a cashless catering system to purchase food from the canteen. From September dinner money will be topped up via your Weduc Payment Wallet (Powered by Squid).

Is your child eligible for Free School Meals?

Free school meals can save you hundreds of pounds a year. They will also help raise money for the school because of the Pupil Premium, a government commitment to pay schools £955 a year for each pupil who is currently registered as entitled to free school meals or has been within the last 6 years.

This is money the school can benefit from to support your child’s progress and achievement by, for example; funding new equipment, curriculum trips and visits, and additional tuition.
