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 menu

The cost of a school meal is £2.00 daily or £10.00 weekly, unless your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2  in which case they are free (see below). Please pay your dinner money in advance on a Monday morning at the office in an envelope marked with your child/ren’s name/s and class/es. This helps save administration time. Soon, we will be introducing paying dinner money online - look out for this option next term.

Halal

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

Packed Lunch

We encourage all children to have a school meal where possible but if you do prefer to send your child with a packed lunch please ensure it is healthy and does not contain crisps, cake or sweets. No fizzy drinks, cans or glass bottles are allowed. No sweets or crisps are allowed. Please do not include them in packed lunches. For further information, please click here to read our packed lunch policy. Additionally, please click here for some packed lunch ideas.

 

 

Snacks and drinks

All children from Reception to Y6 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.
