Our school meals follow a healthy eating policy and are produced freshly every day in our school kitchen. Our cook uses only:
- fresh meat and poultry sourced from the region;
- fruit and vegetables sourced regionally where possible using local suppliers;
- products free from additives associated with health problems in young children;
- fats free from hydrogenated oils; with
- menus that are nutritionally balanced
Children who are in EYFS and Key stage (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) are entitled to a Universal free school meal.
For Key Stage Two pupils (years 3, 4, 5 and 6) there is a charge for school dinners and they cost £3.10 per day.
We ask parents to pre order their child’s lunch options for the current term. Available each day is the main meal option / vegetarian option / jacket potato / sandwich. Children may also bring in a packed lunch.
