School Dinners – Meals are cooked on the premises. Each day a choice of meal is provided which includes a vegetarian option. The meals are provided in accordance with the DfE guidelines on nutrition. The children are asked to bring their money in each day that they wish to purchase a meal.
Sandwiches – Children are welcome to bring in their own sandwiches. Please ensure that they use a non-breakable, clearly labelled sandwich box or lunch bag. We try to encourage children to bring a lunch that is nutritionally balanced. It should not include sweets or fizzy drinks.
Free School Meals – If you are receiving Income Support or Income Based Jobseekers Allowance, your child may be entitled to a Free School Meal. Please contact the school office for further details.

- Portion of fresh fruit or veg
- Plain bread sticks
