School meals are prepared freshly in the school’s new kitchen by Mr Aka and his team. The children enjoy a variety of healthy meals including a vegetarian option, salads and fruit each day. Please click on the link below to see the latest school menus.
We encourage parents and carers to pay weekly, per half term or termly. The cost for a school meal is £2.20 per day or £11 per week. Payments can be made online using our system. If you would like to use our online payment system, please register your email address with the school office. Otherwise, payments should come into the school office in a sealed envelope labeled 'Dinner Money' with your child's name, class and amount enclosed, written on the front.

If you prefer your child may have a packed lunch. We ask that you ensure packed lunches are healthy and well balanced as we do encourage healthy eating at school. The school has children who have nut allergies, so we therefore ask you to check carefully and avoid nut products, sweets, chocolates and fizzy drinks. Please ensure drinks are in a non-breakable container.
We are happy for you to change your child’s lunch choices at the beginning of each half term. Please let the school office know in advance.
Fruit for Schools Initiative
All children in the Early Years and Key Stage 1, receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable for a snack at playtime as part of the Government’s scheme to promote healthy eating. Please let us know if your child has any allergies to any particular types of fruit. Unfortunately, children in Key Stage 2 do not receive free fruit or vegetables, so they may wish to bring a snack to school each day. Please send fruit, peeled vegetables or dried fruit. Please do not send biscuits, chocolate, sweets, crisps, nuts etc. All our meals comply with the new School Food Standards and all allergen information is included on the weekly menus.
