Welcome to our school lunch page.
There are many reasons to encourage children to eat a healthy school lunch.
- Children use a great deal of energy during a school day. They need to concentrate during lessons, let off steam at playtime and recharge their batteries for the afternoon. Eating a school meal helps to achieve this.
- Our ever increasing busy lifestyles often leave us short of time during key times of the day. Having a school lunch saves time – no packed lunches to prepare!
- Participating in the school lunch experience teaches children the social skills involved with eating with others and how to make choices – learning need not stop when the lunch bell goes.
- Children can take part in fun initiatives that encourage them to think about healthy diets and lifestyle.
Our school meals are made with locally sourced fresh fruit and vegetables. All meals include either salad and vegetables and water and juice to drink is always available. The meals are prepared and cooked on our premises by our friendly and experienced catering team. Special diets can be catered for and a vegetarian option is always available.
Our school lunch time is 11.45 -1.10 and our meals represent good value for money - priced at present at £1.90 (£9.50 per week). Children have a choice of healthy main courses and desserts which comply with the government’s new food standards.
Menu sheets are sent home and are available on line for parents and children to discuss and order main meals for the following half term. Children choose their own vegetables and desserts each day.

All children are encouraged to have a school meal, but if parents prefer, a healthy packed lunch can be brought.
