Children are encouraged to eat the healthy balanced meal prepared in school so that they are best able to learn well, and have energy for play times.
Menus are available below so parents can see the range of food on offer. Specific dietary needs, for example halal meat, are catered for.
The daily cost of lunches is notified via newsletter and parents are asked to pay in advance. There is no charge for those pupils eligible for free school meals.
Children are allowed to bring a packed lunch to school. Parents must give one term’s notice of their intention to change between school lunch and packed lunch.
Children in nursery and reception children receive a carton of milk each day free of charge. All children are given a piece of fresh fruit each day free of charge. Children may also bring fruit from home to eat at morning break time.
School meals update from the Headteacher
As you know every family received a preference slip asking you to decide whether Halal meat should return to the menu. Thank you to all those parents who returned the slips.
We received 181 slips back indicating a preference for meat and 30 for a continuation of the vegetarian menu. Governors have carefully considered the options and taken your views into consideration. They have decided that Halal meat will be reintroduced. In September 2017 Halal meat will therefore appear on the menu.
I would like to reassure those parents who preferred a vegetarian menu that there is ALWAYS a vegetarian option. So if you child does not want to eat meat, s/he does not have to.
The new menu can be viewed above. If you have any queries please speak to me or a member of the senior team.
