The school has its own kitchen which prepares a range of nutritious healthy meals using ‘Fresh Start’ menus. Salad is available at a self-service salad bar and vegetarian meals are always available.
1. Those families who are currently in receipt of Income Support, Income Based Jobseeker’s Allowance, the Guaranteed Element of Pension Credit or Child Tax Credit (without Working Tax Credit) where income is less than the statutory lower limit, employment and support allowance(income related), support under part VI of the immigration and asylum may be entitled to Free School Meals. All children in Foundation Stage and KS1 are entitled to a free hot meal every day. Further details can be obtained from the School Administrator. We would like to reassure parents and carers that children receiving free school meals are not treated any differently when they go to the dining hall.
2. Parents and carers who do not wish their children to have school meals can provide them with a packed lunch. Alternatively, if they live close to the school, they may wish their children to go home for lunch.
Children bringing packed lunches will need to have an appropriate packed lunch box with a balanced selection of food and a drink container. Please note that vacuum flasks containing glass are not allowed nor are cans/fizzy drinks.
