School meals are provided by Hutchison Catering. Meals are cooked on site. The food is of good quality with nutritional balance as required by Local Authority regulations. We try to encourage as many children as possible to take a school meal. Drinks are also included. Please inform school if your child has any dietary needs or allergies.
Reception, Y1 and Y2 meals are free.

Meals for children in Y3 to Y6 cost £2.50 and Nursery meals are £2.30. Dinner money can be paid online via Parent Pay.  

If you think your child may be eligible for free school meals, please contact the school office or Pastoral Mentor in confidence.

Children’s packed lunches should not contain sweets, chocolate, cans, glass bottles or fizzy drinks.

The pupils must take all packed lunch waste home daily, so that parents can keep a check on what their child is eating.

Parents need to give one weeks’ notice to change from school dinners to packed lunches. Lunchtime is an important social occasion. Staff carefully supervise children at lunchtime, these include Teaching Assistants, Midday Supervisors, the Pastoral Mentor, the Headteacher and the Deputy Head. Staff are allocated zones and responsibilities on a rota basis.

Our ‘Play Leader’ initiative provides our pupils with a wide range of games and activities. Children from Y4 upwards can choose to be play leaders so that children are never lonely.

Conduct is very good at lunchtime, but there is a reporting system in place for the monitoring of pupils who are not able to maintain this good conduct. For example, bullying, as defined in the school policy, is never acceptable. Incidents are recorded and appropriate sanctions are applied.
