School Dinners & Milk

The meals provided at school are of a very high standard and most of them are prepared in our own kitchens. There is always a choice of menu, including vegetarian and authentic Halal options.  We also have a salad bar.  These are clearly labelled.  Halal food is bought in to ensure it’s authenticity via the Local Authority and catering provided by Facilities Management.

Our Summer Term Menu can be found here.

If you wish your child to enjoy a school lunch we would ask that you send the money for this into school in a sealed envelope with your child’s name on it, the amount of money it contains, name of class teacher and the number of day’s meals required. Money can be posted into the postboxes found in each cloakroom. Alternatively, you can pay for school meals on Parent Pay. Please speak to the office if you would like to know more information about this method of payment. Current charges for meals are at a rate of £1.80 per day or £9.00 per week.

If you would prefer your child to have a packed lunch it should be placed in a named lunch box. As we hold a healthy school award we ask that you do not send sweets or chocolate bars. We have a number of children in school with nut allergies and therefore ask that you do not send nuts into school as a snack.

Packed lunches are not stored in the fridge so please be aware that lunches should not contain any perishable items. Water is provided for all children at lunchtime.

If you wish your child to have a carton of milk each day, the cost is 95p a week or 19p a day. Like school dinners, you can either pay for this on Parent Pay or by posting the money in the postbox in the cloakrooms.
