School Meals

Our meals are prepared by our own cook in our on site kitchen.  The current cost of a school meal is £2.45  This is payable through ParentPay.

The Government provide all children from FS2 (Reception) to Year 2 with Universal Free School Meals (UFSM).   

Children do not have to have a school meal and can bring in a packed lunch from home.  Please be mindful that we are a nut-free school.  All lunch boxes should be clearly named.  

Food Guidelines

Due to the new guidelines on food allergies, it is important to inform you and your children of the foods and the allergens which they contain. We will inform children through a display showing them the allergens contained in that week’s food.

For you, the parents, we have created a guide for your information and hope that this will help you and your children make an informed decision.
