School Meals



We are very fortunate to be able to offer freshly prepared hot meals at lunchtimes which can be ordered on a daily basis. There is always a vegetarian option and parents can pay for individual meals as required.


The menu operates on a three week cycle and all meals are nutritionally balanced. Alternatively, children can bring a packed lunch.

Currently meals cost £2.15 per day.


Alternatively children can bring their own packed lunch to school, we encourage their packed lunch to be balanced and healthy, please see the information for guidance below.


During lunchtimes the children are supervised by Lunchtime Supervisors, these are our school LSA's. They encourage the children to eat all their meal and are happy to monitor the amount eaten if requested.


When the weather allows the children enjoy eating their lunch outside if they are having a packed lunch. When the weather is cooler we operate a rotational sitting system where the order of sitting will rotate each day, allowing each year group to be first sitting, second sitting, third sitting and forth sitting throughout the week.


Please ensure that all meals are paid for in advance, either on-line or on Monday morning.


The choice of a ‘blue’ meal (packed lunch) starts after Easter and runs until October half term. If you do not wish your child to choose this option please let the school office know.


If your child is late for registration they must report to the school office to ensure a lunch is ordered for them. However if your child arrives at school after 10 30 am a packed lunch will need to be provided by you.
