Our Menu for school dinners :

The meals offered are nutritious and fresh local produce is used.  The menus are posted in advance.  There are always three choices including a vegetarian option and Jacket potatoes.  You can purchase tickets on a Monday, Wednesday and Thursday morning before school.  If you think your child is eligible for free school meals, please collect a form from the school office. School meals are becoming increasingly popular.

Bringing food to school
Children who do not have a school meal bring a packed lunch.  As a healthy school we know that a well balanced healthy lunch is essential to ensure optimum learning and a balanced diet. Please ensure that packed lunches are brought to school in a secure container labelled with your child’s name, and with appropriate food hygiene precautions taken e.g. ice pack. Water is available, but you may like to supply a drink.  We prefer drinks to be supplied in sport topped bottles to avoid spillages.  In the interest of health and safety, we would ask that children do not bring cans or glass bottles. They should not bring fizzy drinks or sweets.If your child forgets his or her packed lunch we will try and contact you.  If we are unable to do so we will supply a school lunch and ask you to reimburse us later.

Snack time
You may like your child to have a mid-morning snack.  We welcome fruit and vegetables, but we ask you not to send your child with sweets, chocolate, crisps or gum. Please respect our policy on healthy eating and dental care! KS1 are provided with fruit every day.
