Our current Lunch Menu can be downloaded below.
All children in Reception and Years 1 and 2 will be provided with a hot lunch from the school kitchen. These meals are all funded by the school (using a dedicated grant from central government).
All our school meals are cooked on the premises. As you will recall from recent television documentaries, school dinners have undergone some scrutiny. We are very proud of the changes we have made to our school dinners, which are all made from fresh and locally sourced ingredients (including fresh vegetables and meat).
Children are offered a daily selection of meal options. During morning registration, the children are able to select their lunch to ensure they receive their first choice meal from the menu available that day.
Meals are served on ‘proper’ plates, and children are able to use metal knives and forks (as opposed to plastic tray plates and plastic cutlery). Dining tables hold beakers and juice jugs for all children to use. Children are able to select their pudding once they have eaten their main meal.
Key Stage Two children may bring a packed lunch if they prefer. If you decide that your child will bring a packed lunch, it is important that their lunch box is clearly marked with their name and class. For health and safety reasons, any glass items (e.g. bottles) are not allowed in lunch boxes. We would also ask you to be aware of a balanced, healthy lunch and not include chocolate, crisps or fizzy drinks in your child’s lunchbox.
Many parents, in receipt of certain benefits, are entitled to free school meals. Please speak with the school office for further help with this.
During lunchtime, the children are actively encouraged to recycle foil, plastic bottles and raw food scraps (for our compost bin!)
