Meals and Packed Lunches
School meals are provided each day and are varied, balanced and nutritious.
The current cost of a school lunch per week is £11.00. Dinner money should be paid at the start of each week.
The Government provides free meals for children whose parents qualify. Some parents may not know whether they qualify or not, other may not wish to apply, but by doing so you can benefit yourself and the school. This is because the registration for free school meals is linked to the school budget and contributes to the amount of money allocated to the school each year. Therefore we would ask that all parents who qualify, register for them (even if you choose not to take advantage of the system). We must stress that it is not possible for anyone in the school to distinguish children receiving a free meal from those pupils who pay.
Applying for free school meals is quick and easy. You can apply online using the following link:
Alternatively, application forms are available from the school office.
Please find the school menu here.
If you wish your child to have a packed lunch, please support our health education programme by encouraging your child to eat healthily, e.g. include fresh fruit and vegetables, avoid high fat and high salt contents.
Please do not include sweets, chocolate bars, nuts or anything containing nuts in packed lunches as we are now a NUT FREE school.
Children bringing a packed lunch must bring it in a named lunchbox.
Children do not need to a bring drink with their packed lunch as water is provided for all children. However, children can bring juice or fresh fruit juice (or similar). Fizzy drinks are not permitted. No glass bottles, cans or flasks are allowed.
