School Dinners and Packed Lunches

Healthy School Dinners

The school is committed to encouraging a healthy lifestyle.  The school provides freshly prepared meals.  Children stay for school dinners or bring packed lunches and are supervised during lunch times by our Lunchtime Assistants.  It is essential that children co-operate with these members of staff by behaving sensibly and quietly during the dinnertime.

All children in Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) Year One and Year Two are entitled to a free school meal under the Government's Universal Infant Free School Meals programme.

Free School Meals - Don't miss out!

Packed Lunches
We understand that some of our parents prefer their children to come to school with a packed lunch provided from home each day.  As with our school dinners, we encourage our parents to work with us in providing a healthy and nutritious lunch for their children.
Below you will find our Packed Lunch Policy Guidance leaflet, which provides information on what foods we recommend in a healthy packed lunch.
