School Lunches

Healthy school lunches are prepared on site daily. Each day there is a delicious meal served to the children opting for school meals. There is always an alternative option of a baked potato for main course and fruit of yoghurt for dessert.

Packed Lunches

We are a healthy school and have achieved the Healthy Schools Enhanced Award. We ask that children in Key Stage 2 bring a piece of fruit or healthy snack rather than a bag of crisps for his or her mid-morning break. In Key Stage 1 fruit is provided for the mid-morning break. Any children seen eating crisps or unhealthy choices at break-time will be asked to put them away, either into their lunch box or school bag.

Sweets and chocolate are not to be brought into school ordinarily; however, many children like to bring treats in to celebrate their birthday. This is allowed, as long as sweets are wrapped. They will be given out only at the end of the school day. If you do not want your child to eat such treats, please see your child’s class teacher. You can, of course, provide an alternative treat for your child in these circumstances, to be left with your child’s class teacher to distribute on such occasions if you so wish. This way, no child feels left out.

We do ask that snacks/lunches containing nuts are not sent into school.

If a child is seen eating a snack at break time that we do not consider healthy eg crisps, chocolate bar, they will be asked to put it back into their bag to take home.


Children who are under the age of 5 receive free milk provided by our supplier ‘Cool Milk’.

Once your child turns 5, you can pay for your child to receive milk by visiting their website at


Children should bring a water bottle to school each day. There are water fountains around school should they need to refill their bottles during the day. We do encourage children to drink water rather than juice.
