At lunchtime your child may have a school meal or bring a packed lunch from home. Our school meals are cooked on-site by our in house catering service who provide us with healthy balanced meals freshly prepared.
All children eat in the canteen, whether they have school meals or bring a packed lunch. If your child is bringing a packed lunch from home please make sure that it does not contain sweets, nuts, chocolate or fizzy drinks and that the drink is not in a glass bottle. Crisps and cereal bars are allowed. Hot food in a suitable container is acceptable. Children must be able to open all containers themselves. All lunchboxes and containers must be clearly marked with your child’s name.

In warmer weather children may enjoy a barbecue or eating their packed lunch on the terrace.
The cost of a school meal is £2.40 per day /£12 per week and dinner money must be paid in advance using the Parentpay system. It is helpful for us to know if your child is entitled to free school meals even if you choose not to take up this entitlement.

We are very pleased to be part of the Governments’ School Fruit Scheme, which provides a piece of fruit to every child from Reception to Year 2. Children are also welcome to bring their own fruit in addition to this and we are very happy for our older children to bring a piece of fruit to school to eat during the morning break. All children are encouraged to drink water regularly – either from our drinking fountains or from their own water bottles.
Infant Universal Free School Meals
Pupils in KS1 (Reception, Years 1 and 2) are entitled to Universal Free School Meals. If your child’s class has a school trip, which includes being out for the whole day, a packed lunch will be provided as part of the scheme.
