School Meals

At lunchtime, pupils have the choice of a school meal prepared by our catering company, Mellors, which is prepared freshly on site, or they are able to bring their own packed lunch.  

Our school meals are provided at a cost of £2.50 per day (£12.50 per week), which should be paid weekly via Arbor. (no cash payments to the office are accepted)

School meals are normally planned using a 3 week menu, however given restrictions in place surrounding COVID-19 the menu has been reduced to a 2 week menu as shown in the link below.

2 Week menu

Should your child have any concerns regarding meals or special dietary requirements you need school to be aware of, please call into the school office to discuss this.

All children in KS1 are entitled to a free school meal each day. Children in KS2 may also be entitled if parents are in receipt of certain benefits and have a household income that does not exceed the Government threshold. Further information can be sought from the school office. 

Packed Lunches

Children also have the option of bringing a packed lunch from home. All the children eat their lunches together in the dining room so there is no segregation according to the type of meal they are having. We promote healthy eating and therefore ask that packed lunches reflect this. Please do not send your child in with fizzy drinks and ensure that only one small treat/sugary option is included in their packed lunch each day.  Further information and ideas for healthy packed lunches can be found by clicking on the link below.

Healthy Snacks

We also allow Healthy Snacks at playtime. Children are able to purchase toast at a cost of £1 per week, which needs to be paid weekly via Arbor. (no cash payments to the office are accepted).

EYFS pupils also receive free milk and fruit as a healthy snack.

Pupils can bring in their own toast or fruit for snack if they wish, but we ask that parents refrain from other bars and snacks as they are often full of sugar.
