School Lunches

Our school dinners are cooked and prepared by our team of school chefs. They have designed the menu alongside the children in year 3, who have tried, tasted and approved the flavours. As much food as possible is sourced from producers from within 30 miles from our school. 

Children can choose to have a cooked meal or bring in a packed lunch. However, it is preferred that the children eat school dinners.  They are prepared on site by our school chef and her team . They offer good value for money and provide a very healthy, balanced diet. 

The cost of meals is £2.40 per day.  


Home packed lunches should be nutritionally well balanced. If your child is having home packed lunch, please ensure that lunch boxes and all drinking containers (no glass or cans) are secure. As a healthy school, we ask that a balanced meal is sent, with no fizzy drinks and not too many sweet items during each week. Naming the sandwich boxes, particularly for the Reception and Key Stage 1 children is useful. Our school hall provides a lovely place for children to eat their lunch.

School meals for children in Reception, Year 1 and year 2 are free of charge as they are part of the Universal Free School Meals (UFSM) offered by the government. Meals provided from children in years 3 to 6 must be paid for in advance. If you think your family is entitled to Free School Meals through the disadvantage fund, please talk to our office staff and they will help be able to support you with your application.
