School Meals

All our school meals are cooked onsite in the school kitchen. As from September 2015 the cost for all KS2 children is £2.00 per day.

Payment for the meals should be made on a Monday morning and should be in a sealed envelope with the child’s name on and how much money is in the envelope. Children can choose to have a lunches on specific days rather than all week, just let the office know when those days will be.

Alternatively, children can bring a packed lunch. This must be kept in a bag/sandwich box with their name on it. We encourage children to bring a healthy packed lunch that includes fruit and vegetables. Children are not permitted to bring fizzy drinks in their packed lunch.

Children can bring healthy snacks into school for break times. Alternatively, Year 6 run a snack shop where snacks can be bought for between 20p and 30p. This is run in the hall and is open daily.
