Our School meals

Nutritious and healthy meals are provided on the School premises. There is a choice of menu, including vegetarian options. Dinner money is payable on Monday morning, please ensure money is in an envelope clearly marked with the child’s name and class – information on costs and availability of free school meals can be obtained from the School Office.

Training for the kitchen staff on providing Halal meals has now taken place. Halal meals have been available from 22nd April 2014.

Children wishing to bring a packed lunch may do so. Packed lunches must be clearly marked with the child’s name, drinks being in a sealed, plastic container. In the interests of healthy eating fizzy drinks, sweets and chewing gum should not be included.

If your child wishes to change from a packed lunch to school dinners or vice verse,  we require written notice to the office, two weeks before you wish the change to take place. 

Times for meals are as follows:
11.30: Foundation Stage – Nursery
11.45: Reception
12.00: Key Stage 1
12.30: Key Stage 2
