Excellent school meals are cooked on the premises with our pupils having a choice of meals each day. The menu is based on a four week cycle of meals which are different each day. A copy of the menu is towards the end of the prospectus and can also be viewed by clicking on this link: Menus.
Children with specific dietary requirements can be accommodated following a conversation with the school cook Anne Jankus, who will then provide a suitable meal each day.
As an alternative, pupils can bring a healthy packed lunch to eat. If you decide on this option we ask that the amount of crisps and biscuits in lunchboxes are limited to one packet of crisps and one healthy biscuit. Please note pupils are not allowed to bring nuts, of any kind, into school, including peanut butter sandwiches. This is to protect children in school who have nut allergies.
Water is provided for all children at lunchtime. Children with their own lunch can bring their own drink which should be juice based and not carbonated / fizzy.
Pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to Universal Free Meals. For pupils in Y3- Y6 dinner money can be paid termly, half termly, weekly or daily. It must be paid in advance and should be sent in an envelope or small container, clearly marked with your child's name and class.
Some of our parents will be entitled to free meals for their children. If you think this may apply to you, please contact the school office who will be able to advise you. All information given is strictly confidential and children who receive free meals are not identifiable either by other children or by the supervisory staff.
Please note, if your son / daughter is in Reception, Year 1 or Years 2 and you claim any of the following:
In Reception and Key Stage 1,children are entitled to free fruit each day and pupils under 5 years old also receive free milk. Children over 5 years old can order milk for morning break through www.coolmilk.com. In Key Stage 2, children can buy fruit from school and we are in the process of deciding on the availability of a healthy biscuit. Chocolate, crisps or sweets of any kind are not permitted.
Drinks at School
Children are encouraged to bring water in a named container each day. Being well hydrated has been shown to help children’s brains stay active and alert. Drink bottles are kept in the classroom and taken outside for your children to drink form at lunch and break times. No squashes or juices are permitted and bottles should be taken home each day to be washed.
