School Meals

We have an excellent catering team led by our very own Catering Manager. They know the children well and are fabulous at catering for individual allergen needs. We have two spacious dining rooms where the children sit and eat their lunch. Parents can choose to send a packed lunch into school or purchase a school meal for their child.  Our school meals include an option for a school packed lunch. If you would like to order school meals then please contact the school office.

School meals are as healthy as possible but  in order to encourage children to eat hot school meals they also appeal to pupils - pupils are often involved in menu choices. You will find the current menu below. There are varied choices, allergens and vegetarians are catered for. Children have access to the salad cart which is always popular.

You can download the menus for Winter 2023 here. These menus begin in September 2023.

Our new Spring menu will begin in April 2024. See below:

Home Prepared Packed Lunch

Children are allowed to bring a packed lunch for their midday lunch, but these must be brought in a suitable container with the name of the child clearly marked. We encourage the children to have healthy lunches and recommend they do not bring sweets and chocolates. Pupils are not permitted to have hot food as we cannot manage the temperatures. We often have children with nut allergies, so we kindly request that parents avoid nuts as a snack where possible please.
