We offer healthy, hot lunches, freshly prepared and cooked on site by our catering team, led by the Kitchen Manager Mrs Gadie. All meals comply fully with the School Meals’ National Standards.
We ask that parents of children in Key Stage 2 look at the menus and consider which days they would like their child to take lunch and book via Parentpay by Monday of each week. Your child can have a hot lunch every day, or just on selected days, however we would kindly request that you pre-order the meals
Parents of children in Reception and Key Stage 1 who have opted to take Universal Infant School Meals are also asked to book if their child will be having a school lunch as this will help to minimise food wastage.
The cost of a school lunch for children in Key Stage 2 is £2.55 per child per day.
Universal Infant School Meals
Children in Foundation and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a school meal funded directly from central government.
Free School Meals
You may be asked to complete a Free School Meal application form, even if your child is in Foundation or Key Stage 1, on starting school or if your circumstances change. Free School Meals (FSM) and Universal Infant School Meals (UISM) are different. The number of children in school who receive FSM affects the amount of Pupil Premium funding paid to our school. UISM money is paid purely to cover the cost of meals taken by children on a given day.

Children also have the option of bringing a packed lunch to school. We ask parents to send healthy lunches every day and actively discourage fizzy drinks and sweets
