School MenuMeals at School
All foundation Stage 2 and KS1 children at our school are entitled to a universal school meal. KS2 pupils have to pay for these, with the exception of children who are entitled to free school meals.
Children who have school dinners are provided with a healthy, balanced meal that is prepared within the government guidelines for nutritional and dietary needs. A choice of fresh orange, milk or water is available for drinks.
The fruit and vegetables are fresh and are cooked on the day in our own kitchen. A self-service salad bar is available for children having a school meal. Children can help themselves to cucumber, tomato, sweetcorn, coleslaw etc.
Parents/Carers of children bringing packed lunches are encouraged to ensure that these contain healthy options. We request that parents ensure that packed lunches are packed in a strong container clearly labelled with the child’s name. Children will bring home all the packaging from their meal.
We have teamed up with ParentPay to develop a new cashless catering system. We are one of the first schools in the country to use this technology. Instead of paying for dinners in cash you are able to pay for them on-line. Details on how to set up an account are available from the school’s main office.
Below is a copy of the school menu.

Special Diet Statement from The Catering Team
The schools catering team is able to provide a medically required special diet and has a policy for this to ensure that every child receives a meal that is nutritious and medically suitable for them.
Special diets will be catered for, provided requests for these are supported by a medical report such as a letter from your GP or hospital dietician.
Requests for special diets must be made direct to your school cook with a supporting letter and the required supporting evidence.
A special menu will then be agreed upon, in writing, between the parent, the cook and the Area Supervisor for the child’s school. Once the signed consent form for the diet is received by School Catering a date will be agreed for the menu to commence. A packed lunch should be supplied by the parent/guardian until a commencement date is received.
Parents/guardians who require a special diet are advised not to order meals until this process is completed.
