The school runs its own school catering service and meals are cooked from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Meals are served in the school hall. There is a 3-week menu, including a vegetarian option. All meals must be paid for in advance on-line on School Money. Families in receipt of Income Support and other benefits may be eligible for free school meals and should contact the school office in confidence.
Children may prefer to bring a packed lunch; these are eaten in the new hall. Sweets, canned or fizzy drinks and glass containers are not permitted. The school has no facilities to refrigerate or heat packed lunches and in warmer weather, parents are urged to use cooling packs in lunch boxes. We are a nut-free school.
Pupils in the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable each day as part of the Government’s programme for healthy living. Pupils in Years 3 to 6 may bring in a healthy snack but no sweets and crisps. The school has a number of indoor and outdoor water fountains, and pupils are free to bring in
bottled water which should be named. A healthy tuck shop operates every morning break, selling fruit, toast and milk.
