Children can choose to have a delicious, healthy, hot lunch, cooked on the premises by our experienced kitchen team, or bring a packed lunch from home. The menu is on a three week rotation and always includes a vegetarian option. All food prepared in school is halal, including all meat dishes. Milk, bread and yoghurt are organic and any eggs used are free-range. Where possible, vegetables are fresh and seasonal. The school has a healthy eating policy and packed lunches must keep to this policy; this means no crisps, fizzy drinks, chocolate or sweets.
At present, all children from Reception to Year 6 are entitled to free school meals, funded by the national and local governments. Nursery children must pay for their dinners and parents can pay on a daily, weekly or monthly basis at the office window. Pupils can also pay lunch money to their class teacher at registration time. School lunches must be paid for before they are eaten. Families receiving certain benefits or living on a low income may be entitled to free meals for nursery children too. Please ask in the office for a pupil premium form or for more details.
School lunches cost £2.30 each day and £11.50 for the week.
It is now possible to pay for lunches, trips and events online or with a debit/credit card. Please ask in the school office for more information.
