Lunch is prepared on the premises and served in the dining hall. Pupils can have a freshly cooked meal each day. Salad and fresh fruit is also available. The children are able to select their meal from the menu and to choose where they sit. The lunchtime is organised over two 'sittings' as this reduces the noise level and makes the experience more relaxed and pleasurable for the children. The menu changes mid-year and a copy of this is sent home to families. Dinner money is collected on the first day of each week for the whole week. The cost of a school meal (fixed by the school‘s meal service) is £1.85 per day i.e. £9.25 per week.
Pupils can bring a packed lunch as an alternative. We encourage parents to provide a healthy meal, in accordance with our Healthy School Status. We also recognise that many of our children have very specific food preferences and that these can change at any time. Please feel welcome to discuss this with us. Water is available from dispensers in set areas of school.
Many families qualify for Free School Meals. The relevant forms are available in the school office and form part of our 'New Pupils Welcome Pack'
