Meals are cooked on site by our own cook, Chrissie Hinge. Children can choose if they would like a school dinner or their own packed lunch. There is always a choice of menu, including salads and a vegetarian dish. Special diets can be catered for, if we are given adequate notice. Packed lunches should be nutritionally well balanced. They should not include sweets or chocolate, crisps, fizzy drinks or drinks in glass containers or cans.
School meals must be paid for in advance, either weekly (on a Monday), half termly, or termly. Parents in receipt of income support will be entitled to a free school dinner for their child. Forms are available in the school office and dealt with in the strictest confidence which can also be downloaded here:
A weekly meal rota is sent home each term and is also available to download by clicking on the link below so parents can see what’s on offer each day. Meal price £2.60
Currently, the NHS sponsors a free piece of fruit or vegetable for every Foundation Stage and KS1 child every day, which we give out at morning playtime. Children can bring their own fruit if they’d prefer. No other snack is permitted. KS2 children can bring their own fruit snacks if they wish.
The School Food Trust was established by the Department for Education and Skills in September 2005. Its remit is to transform school food and food skills, promote the education and health of children and young people and improve the quality of food in schools.
