Lunches are cooked in a well equipped kitchen on the school premises. The meals are of a high standard and are popular with children and staff. The Kitchen has recently won a Customer Care award from Primary Catering. The choice includes a meat dish, a vegetarian meal and a salad bar, as well as a choice of pudding. It is preferable that children take meals (or sandwiches,) on a full-time basis, and that 2 weeks’ notice is given for any change in this routine. However, please contact us if you require more flexibility.
The cost of school lunch is presently £2.30 (2021-22) per day per child. All lunches are paid for through ParentPay. Please see this section of our website for more information. School lunches are currently free to children in Reception, Y1 and Y2.
Parents who feel that they may be eligible for free meals are encouraged to contact the office for information or application forms. All enquiries are dealt with in the strictest confidence.
Special diets on medical/religious grounds are also catered for, so do not hesitate to let us know if your child has any special requirements.
Some children prefer to bring sandwiches for lunch. We request that parents provide healthy lunch boxes for children and do not send sweets or fizzy drinks. As part of a child’s healthy lunch box, one small cake bar or small chocolate bar is acceptable. Please ensure that lunch boxes are also clearly labelled with your child’s name and discuss with your child the importance of bringing it home after each school day.
Children may bring in healthy snacks from home such as fruit, yogurt tubes or cereal bars to eat at morning break.
From the time that children start school, good links with parents are established.
