HOW LUNCHES WORK:

Meals are prepared freshly every day in our school kitchen. The children choose and order their lunches at the start of the school day.  They have a choice of either a hot cooked meal, jacket potato with a variety of fillings or a school packed lunch. 

Meals are offered free of charge for Key Stage 1 children (Reception - Year 2).  

The cost of a meal for Key Stage 2 children (Year 3 - Year 6) is £2.00 per day. 

All monies should be paid online through Aspens, our catering suppliers.

Milk Letter

The school is part of the National Fruit Scheme which provides a daily piece of fruit for every child in Foundation Stage and KS1.  We also run a 'Fruity Friday' scheme whereby, for a yearly charge, children are helped to a cup of fruit on Friday.  To encourage healthy eating and develop taste buds, we offer a variety of fruit each week.

Sweets

We do not allow children to bring sweets into school for any reason.  Please do not send sweets to school to celebrate birthdays or holidays as we will simply return them.  Chocolate and sweets should not be included in a packed lunch.

Drinks

We prefer all children to drink water only in school (from the fountain or their own water bottles).
