Our menu shows the variety of meals currently on offer in Llangyfelach Primary school .  As you will see, there is a daily choice of a home cooked meals, using quality ingredients.

The cost of School Meals is currently £2.00 per day (£10.00 per week). This compares favourably to the cost of preparing a healthy packed lunch and just think how much more convenient it is for you as a parent.

Dinner money is paid every Wednesday and meals are then taken w/b the following Monday.  Cheque is preferred, made payable to "City & County of Swansea".  Please ensure that your child's name and class are written on the reverse of the cheque or cash envelope.
