At lunchtime, children have the choice to either bring a packed lunch to school or take advantage of a healthy school meal freshly prepared by our own catering staff on the school premises. We are able to cater for all dietary needs and our staff are trained to support children who require different feeding methods or who experience difficulty in eating and swallowing.
All children in Key Stage 1 (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) are entitled to Universal Free School Meals.
Some children may also be eligible for Free School Meals which will entitle the school to receive Pupil Premium funding.
Please read our information leaflet about Free School Meals in the side bar of the page.
All meals need to be ordered online via Parent Pay: https://www.parentpay.com/. If you have any issues with the booking system you can contact Parent Pay online via this website.
Our school meals provider is Chartwells, you can find more information on their website https://loveschoolmeals.co.uk
Chartwells have asked that parents order meals by 2pm Tuesday for the following week.
We provide healthy snacks in for all of our pupils and participate in the ‘Free Fruit for Schools’ initiative for Reception to Year 2.
Free School Milk
Our school provides a milk scheme that is available to all of our pupils. School milk provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused. For more information on how milk can benefit children visit www.coolmilk.com/why-milk-is-great.
By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day.
How much does it cost?
Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.
