Our Primary School menus are carefully developed to appeal to children and provide the perfect balance of essential nutrients – and to offer them the chance to try a few dishes they may not have tried before. Your child can choose from two main meal options provided every day, each one accompanied by a vegetable choice, and including a daily vegetarian dish. Jacket potatoes with an assortment of popular and tasty fillings are always available, too, served with an attractive side salad.
Additional salad and wholemeal bread is also on offer each day along with a dessert of the day, a selection of yoghurts, cheese and crackers and fresh fruit. A range of cold drinks are also available.
Parent Pay is our preferred payment method. School meals are currently £13 per week or £2.60 per day.

Children who receive a free school meal are not singled out in any way.
If you meet the above criteria please fill in the means tested free school meals form and return it to the address shown on the form.

Year 2 had a visitor from an Animal Aid charity Worker who taught us all about how we can care for animals in our environment and why some mini beasts are so important to our ecosystem. We made our own fruity mini beasts and tasted new fruits we hadn’t eaten before.
