Meals & Nutrition

At lunchtime, you may arrange for your child to have a school dinner, bring a packed lunch or collect him/her from school to go home. To assist us with ordering of food and our supervision levels at lunchtime, we would prefer that your child keeps to the same lunchtime arrangements each half term. Please notify us in good time (at least two weeks notice) if you wish to change your arrangements.

Our catering service provides our school meals in line with current Government Guidelines. The catering staff prepare an excellent variety of meals that offer help provide the children with a balanced diet. School meals are a good opportunity for the children to develop their social skills and can play a major part in broadening children’s attitudes to what they will and will not eat.

School meals should be paid for in advance on a termly, half-termly or weekly basis. Money should be brought in on the first day of the school week in a named envelope.

We encourage parents to follow healthy eating guidelines when sending packed lunches or snacks to school.

Milk and fresh fruit are available for children in Foundation and KS1. Although the milk is subsidised by the EU, there is still a small charge payable one term in advance, (charge varies according to the number of days in the term). The fresh fruit is EU-subsidised and there is no charge.
