Our school meals are provided by Chartwells and offer a healthy, balanced meal. Menus are offered on a cycle and a hot meal, vegetarian option, sandwiches and jacket potatoes are offered daily. There are also regular meals to celebrate special events.
Children can have hot dinners or packed lunch on a weekly basis. If you require a change in lunch arrangements you must inform the office in writing. Please ensure that payment for hot dinners is sent into school on Monday’s, in an envelope with your child’s name and class.

Our current menu follows a 3 weekly cycle:
Children may bring a packed lunch to school. This should be clearly labelled with your child’s name and class. In line with our healthy schools policy please try to ensure that you provide your child with a healthy packed lunch. Energy drinks are NOT allowed. We recommend that sweets and chocolate are kept to a minimum and maybe included as a treat on a Friday. As part of our on-going commitment to the environment we recommend that you use insulated lunch boxes and reusable plastic containers.
