School Catering

All children from Reception to Year 4 are welcome to have a hot school meal or to bring in their healthy lunch from home.

The children in Reception and Year 1 are served the healthy choice from the menu whilst each morning those children in Years 2, 3 and 4 make their own choice from the daily menu.

Fresh salad and pasta is always available for the children to add to their plates along with drinking water.

Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals.

Children in Year 3 and Year 4 are no longer entitled to University Infant Free School Meals therefore payment will be made via ParentPay.

A hot school meal is £2.00 a day or £10.00 per week (2016-2017). All payments to school must be  made via the ParentPay system we have set up at

Please note that the school office and kitchen require two weeks notice if you wish to change from one to the other.



Here is the menu for the academic year 2016-17:
