We believe in the importance of a good meal in the middle of school day. This helps children to concentrate better on their learning through the afternoon, and gives them the energy to make the most of all the opportunities they will have in school. It is also an important social activity, too, where they learn to sit and share meals with adults and children in other classes and sometimes year groups.
Our school meals service has been carefully chosen to meet the needs of the widest possible range of children. Each day, all children who choose to have a school meal, cooked from fresh on the premises in well-equipped, modern kitchens with the highest of hygiene standards, will be able to select their meal from a choice of five different options. These options will always include both hot and cold food, sandwiches, jacket potatoes and a vegetarian option. All meat used in the kitchen is HMC halal certified.
Please download our latest menu (link below) to see what delicious options are available.
We also offer bread, milk and salad as well as a choice of desserts including fresh fruit every day.
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 automatically qualify for a free school meal every day (this is known as the Universal Infant Free School Meal offer). We encourage 100% of children to take up this great opportunity.
Some families will also qualify for Free School Meals because of the benefits they may be receiving. Our admin staff in both offices would be very happy to help you discover whether your child would qualify.
It is very important that you check if you qualify for Free School Meals (even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2) because the school receives additional funding for every child who is either eligible for Free School Meals now, or has been eligible at any point in the last 6 years. This funding is known as Pupil Premium and is used by the school to further enhance educational provision for those children, helping them to achieve more strongly.
If you do not wish for your child to have a school meal, you can either collect them to take them home for lunch and return for the start of afternoon school, or alternatively provide a healthy packed lunch. This should not include sweets.
