School Dinners

Our Head of Kitchen works with a team of wonderful catering staff to provide us with mouth watering meals every day!


If you have any dietary requirements that you would like to discuss with her she is always happy to speak with you. Just ask at the school office and we will put you in touch with her. Please note - we have children with nut allergies in school and therefore ask that you do not send nuts or nut products in your child's packed lunches please.


As well as the main hot dinner, jacket potatoes or the vegetarian choice of the day can be ordered at the morning register. We also have a 'school sandwich' style lunch for children - the children love it! Children will receive a freshly filled sandwich or roll, a healthy snack, a home baked goodie and a piece of fruit. All this for the same great value £2.40! Meals are cooked and prepared to order.


A school meal is £2.40 per day (£12.00 per week) and we need this to be paid in advance of meals being taken, via our SchoolMoney system. All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a Universal Free School Meal each day.


Are you eligible for Free School Meals? If you think you may be please click on this link to get more information and apply online. Even if you are in receipt of Universal Free Meals you can still make a claim as this generates a huge amount of funding for the school to benefit your children.


We offer total flexibility giving children the choice of a dinner on any day by ordering at registration time. If paying in cash, please ensure all monies are in an envelope, clearly marked with your child’s name, their class and which days they are having their school meal.


Please encourage your child to bring a healthy snack e.g. fruit, raisins, plain biscuits,  NO chocolate or sweets allowed. Fruit is provided each day free of charge for children in EYFS, Year 1 & Year 2. You can also order snack! Take a look at our school snack page.
