If you require a change in lunch arrangements you must inform our school office. 

Packed Lunches

Alternatively, children may bring a healthy 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 included as a treat on a Friday only. As part of our on-going commitment to the environment we recommend that you use insulated lunch boxes and reusable plastic containers.

Free School Meals

All children in Reception and Key Stage 1 are entitled to free school meals as part of the government’s universal free school meal offer. However, it is important that if you qualify for free school meals that you apply as school obtains additional funding. Please click the link below to download an application form or contact the school office if you need help completing the form.


What to do if your child has a food allergy or specific, individual dietary requirements…

Please contact the school office and make an appointment if you would like to discuss any allergen issues or individual dietary requirements your child may have.    We will do our absolute best to cater for all individuals. 

Playtime Snacks

Children are encouraged to drink water throughout the day. Fruit is provided for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1. Key Stage 2 children are encouraged to bring healthy snack like fruit or a cereal bar to enjoy during their morning break.
