School Meals


The school provides the opportunity for children to have a hot meal in the middle of the day prepared by our cook Miss Mandy Wood and her team. There is a wide choice of menu including hot and cold dishes, salads, fruit and yogurts. All Reception, Year 1 & 2 children receive a free School meal from the Government and the cost of a meal for KS2 children is just £1.00. Families receiving income support are entitled to free school meals and forms to claim this can be downloaded here. Parents are welcome to come and see the meals on offer before deciding whether their child will have a school meal or a packed lunch.

Packed Lunches

If your child brings a packed lunch to school we ask you to observe the following:-

  • The lunch should be contained in a box or bag suitable to store in school.
  • Drinks should be in unbreakable containers, not glass bottles and a straw should be provided. We discourage children from drinking from cans and bottles.
  • If yogurts or desserts which need a spoon to eat them with are in the packed lunch, please provide a spoon.
  • We encourage healthy school meals please try to avoid crisps and chocolate and include fruit

Dinner Money

Envelopes are provided for dinner money. Payment should be made on Mondays for the week. All meals must be paid for before 9.30am on Friday to enable the school secretary to balance the dinner registers.

Home Lunches

Children who go home for lunch should not return to school before 12.55 p.m.
