School lunches provide children with:


- a hot, healthy, tasty meal which meets the latest nutritional standards

- a high proportion of traditionally prepared, homemade dishes providing choice and variety to suit all tastes

- lunches that are prepared using locally sources produce where possible

- great value for money

- convenience – saving you time preparing packed lunches

- improved learning abilities – studies have shown that children concentrate better in lessons if they have had a fulfilling meal

- children with the opportunity to develop their social skills, whilst eating with others and talking to our friendly staff whilst being served their lunch

- children with a chance to relax in a safe, supervised environment with friends


Our school cook and dinner ladies care about the food they prepare, the children they serve and believe that school catering should be an integral part of school life and learning.  We encourage children and try to develop their enjoyment, understanding and appreciation of good food.


Menus are sent to each family every half year.  The menu is available here on the website with nutritional information available on the EATs website.  The 2nd option is only served if booked at

morning registration or when paying dinner money.  


School meals are free to children in Year R, Year 1 and Year 2 under the new Universal

Infant Free School meal initiative.   For children in Years 3-6 school lunches cost just £2.30

a day, which represents great value for money when considering the benefits such as the

price of food in the shops and the convenience of not having to prepare a packed lunch.  


Free School Meals (without the ‘universal at the beginning) are different; children are eligible for these if their parents meet the required criteria.  Please follow this link to see full details.  


Please consider registering for free school meals even if your children does not want the meals or is entitled to the free universal meal.  Being registered entitles both the families and the school to other benefits such as free music lessons, reduced charges for visits etc.  Some of the income the school received is based on the number of children entitled to free school meals.  The process is very simple and confidential.
