Menu from April 2018.pdf

Under the new Universal Free School Meals scheme introduced in September 2014 by the Goverment, all children in Foundation Stage 2 and Key Stage 1 (Years 1 & 2) are eligible to recieve a free school meal every day. 

Meals are cooked on the premises and are of the highest standard. Payment for meals (for Key Stage 2 children only) should be made on Monday morning. Money should be placed in a sealed envelope with the child’s name and amount written clearly on the front.


The school operates a ‘wristband system’. Children make their selection from the menu choices each day and are given a coloured wristband to indicate their choice. The kitchen then provides the appropriate meal for each child. The menu operates on a 3 week rota to ensure variety.


Alternatively, children may bring a packed lunch if this is preferred. We ask that parents/carers providing a packed lunch support our healthy lunchbox initiative by including fruit and other healthy choices and no more than one ‘treat’ item such as a cake or biscuit. Glass bottles, fizzy drinks and sweets are not allowed.


A register is kept of the children who stay to dinner. Please inform the school of any appointments so that the kitchen staff can be given sufficient notice of numbers.
