School meals cost £2.50 and are freshly made each day. Our healthy and nutritious lunches are cooked using fresh ingredients on our school site by our experienced catering team. Caterlink provide our school lunches and they ensure that all food produced meets the Governmental Nutritional Standards as well as the Food Based Standards.
School meals are planned on a 3 week cycle and always contain 2 choices including a vegetarian option. Children can also help themselves to our salad bar and bread. Caterlink provide taster sessions for parents - look out for the next session.
If your child has moved from Year 2 to Year 3 this year, we very much hope they will continue having a school meal even though they have to be paid for, as they are healthy and nutritious and represent excellent value. If you have any questions about school meals or the booking system, please contact the school office.
If your child has a specific dietary need for a medical reason we would be delighted to provide them with a bespoke special diet menu. Please let Caterlink know of any dietary needs.
Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal as part of the Government’s Universal Infant Free School Meal initiative. Free school meals may also be provided for your children if you receive benefits, for example income support or child tax credit.
All meals, including free ones, need to be ordered online in advance by midnight the day before.
Pack Lunches – What you need to know
Eating well is important. Children need to eat well as it will give them energy and nutrients to grow and develop, be healthy and active. A healthy, enjoyable lunch gives children the energy they need to learn and play at school.
At any one time we are likely to have a number of children with nut allergies, and for some of them, exposure to nuts can be very dangerous. Therefore, the school promotes no nuts and no sesame seeds. Please ensure the food you provide does not contain nuts or sesame seeds.
Use the information in this leaflet to help make your child a healthier packed lunch.
The school understands that healthy snacks can be an important part of the diet of young people.
In the Early Years, Reception and Years 1 and 2 children are provided with a piece of fruit or vegetable provided by the NHS free fruit and vegetable scheme.
Children in KS2 are able to bring their own healthy snack into school to eat at break-times. Crisps and sweets are not allowed.
The school provides water or free milk for all children at lunchtimes. Under 5s are provided with milk as part of the Government’s free milk scheme.
Children are encouraged to bring in their own water bottle which can be re-filled during the day. There are several water fountains in the playground and the school building.
