School Meals

Sample menu

Here’s a sample 3 weekly menu to give you an idea of the food that is available to the children. Each day, they can choose a main, a side (more than one if they wish to) and a dessert.

How much is it?

As part of the government’s ‘Universal Free School Meals’ initiative’ all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to school meals completely free of charge. The cost of a school meal for all other children is £2.25 and should be paid on Mondays using our parental payment system. If your child is absent then a credit will be made.

Dietary requirements

If your child has any special dietary requirements then please let school know as provision can be made for them.

Packed lunches

Children who do not have a school meal can bring a packed lunch or go home. Please ensure that packed lunches are brought to school in a secure container labelled with your child’s name. In the interest of health and safety, we ask that you do not include nuts (i.e. peanut butter sandwiches) as we have children with nut allergies. We also ask that the children do not bring cans or glass bottles and fizzy drinks or sweets.

Morning snack

Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children are provided with fresh fruit every day which they eat during morning break. For Key Stage 2 we sell packets of dried fruit and fruit bars every morning at a cost of 30p.
