This school provides a hot school meals service. Alternatively, children may prefer to bring a home packed lunch. Lunch is taken in the hall and supervised by school staff.
Home Packed Lunch Option
When sending in lunch please pack the food in a plastic food box, marked with the child’s name. Lunchboxes are stored in allocated locations. The school promotes healthy eating. We have a Food in School Policy and a wealth of information regarding healthy eating including recipe ideas, nutritional information and safe storage instructions.
School Lunch Option
Hot meals are provided by The School Lunch Company.
All pupils in Year R, 1 and 2 are offered a meal free of charge. Other pupils may also have hot meals on a paying basis. Each meal costs £2.30.
The menu is a set menu and a vegetarian option is also offered if necessary or preferred. Allergies are catered for please inform the school office if your child has an allergy.
Meals must be ordered by Wednesday at 3:15 pm in advance of the week of requirement. Parents do not have to order a meal for every day of the week; children may bring a packed lunch on some days should they wish. The menu will be displayed on the school website/sent home once only.

Although we will try to remind you before the authorisation of free meals runs out, it must be emphasised that it remains your responsibility to apply for the entitlement to continue. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to provide free school meals unless an application is made and the relevant documents are presented. Please ask the school office for a form. The duty to provide a free lunch to an otherwise eligible child will be conditional on a request being made by, or on behalf of, an eligible child, and no monetary compensation will be made. Currently eligibility for free school meals at this school is 8%.
