School Dinners

The children wash their hands and then queue up in their classroom. After lunch, they go out to the playground. Each day during morning registration, the children will advise whether they are having a school lunch or are packed. School meals comprise of two courses which are designed to be nutritious and appealing to children. There is one main choice and an alternative/vegetarian every day and the menu works on rotation and is published in advance. In addition, baguettes, wraps and jacket potatoes are available every day on request. The children eat together in the hall and can choose where they sit. Fizzy drinks and sweets are not included in school meals and are not allowed in packed lunches please.

Packed lunches

We have 'healthy snacks' policy and this also extends to lunches brought in from home. 

If we are concerned about the lunches a child brings, we will contact the child's parents.

In addition to our selection of hot school meals, the kitchen can produce school-packed lunches for children (if ordered in advance).  These will include cheese, ham and tuna mayo rolls and wraps.
