Menus

Children are given a choice of menu first thing in the morning after registration. Kitchen staff then know exactly how many of each hot or cold meal to prepare.

If parents have any queries about their child’s school lunch or their specific dietary requirements they should contact the school office. We have a 3 week menu and children have their lunches in the school hall. Lunches are free for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children. There is a charge of £2.20 per day for children in Y3-6 or 30 hour Nursery children.

Healthy packed lunch

If you decide to send your child with a packed lunch please help us to promote healthy eating by providing a healthy balanced lunch avoiding drinks, any foods containing additives and colourings, sweets, chocolate bars, flavoured crisps/ snacks and any other high sugar, salty or fatty foods. (We base our packed lunch standards on the Food Standards Agency requirements for a healthy diet). Water will be available on the dining tables for all children to drink. Children are encouraged to drink plenty of water during the school in an effort to address dehydration. Packed lunches should be a light balanced snack of nutritious food to enable your child to access learning effectively. There should not be a drink in the packed lunch, as water is provided for all children.

A half term notice must be given, if you wish to change your child’s lunch preference.
