School Lunches and Snacks
Please click on the link below for the latest menu.
We actively encourage the children to lead a healthy life and promote healthy eating, good hygiene and a positive approach to taking responsibility for caring for their bodies throughout all aspects of their learning.
All children are encouraged to bring in their own plastic bottle filled with water each day. These stay in their classroom so that they can remain hydrated throughout the day. They can refill their water bottles throughout the day.
It is our policy to encourage children to eat a healthy diet. All Reception and Infant children are given a piece of fruit and reception children receive milk every day. Children may bring their own healthy snack from home.
Many of our children have a school lunch which is freshly cooked on the premises daily. Children can choose to buy a hot school meal or have a sandwich in the warmer months. These cost £2.60 per day and both represent excellent value for money. Please pay in advance for meals on School Gateway.
Nut Allergies – We have a number of children with severe nut and sesame allergies. Please ensure all packed lunches and snacks are nut and sesame free.
Packed lunches may be brought to school if preferred. These should be in a clearly named container. Glass bottles and containers should not be brought in. Children must also bring any necessary cutlery. A healthy packed lunch is encouraged to provide a balanced diet.
