School Food

School Meals

Children either have school dinners or packed lunch. Our school dinners are cooked on the premises and always include fresh ingredients, salad and fresh fruit. The ingredients are as local as possible. The kitchen is Halal, and is also nut free. We cater daily for a range of dietary requirements including gluten free and vegan options.

Please take a look at our Summer 1 2023 menu

The cost of a school meal is £2.25 daily or £11.25 weekly, unless your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2  in which case they are free (see below). Please pay your school meals money in advance, either weekly or half termly.


All our meat and poultry is halal and HMC approved. See certificate here

Packed Lunch

Snacks and drinks

All children from Reception to Y3 receive a free piece of fruit each day at morning break time.

Children may bring a reusable bottle of water to school, which they may drink in the classroom or the playground.  Do give your child a small bottle of water labelled with their name:  drinking water regularly prevents dehydration. Water bottles may be filled up from the taps in the classroom or water fountains.
