Children are required to either bring a packed lunch or parents are required to book a hot dinner online using the ParentPay system. The school can provide a full hot-meal service for any children who require it.
At mealtimes the children are closely supervised by a team of Mid-day Supervisors and good manners and safety are actively promoted.
A hot meal service at lunchtimes is provided by our supplier (CaterLink) and is cooked locally and freshly on the day. The children usually have a choice of four different meal options per day, including a vegetarian option, and need to select in advance which meal they would like. Special meal options are provided at Christmas time.
If you require a hot dinner then you need to book it online before 6.30am of that day. It is the parents’ responsibility to do this and not the school’s. If your child is ill you must remember to cancel their dinner too or you may get charged for it. Your child must also choose their meal online at the time of booking.
Meal booking and payment is all processed via the ParentPay service.
Packed Lunches and Snack Boxes
Children are able to bring a snack to eat during mid-morning break. This can be a piece of fruit/vegetable, a healthy cereal bar and a drink of fruit juice. We encourage children to drink regularly during the day, and request that parents provide water in a suitable bottle (pull cap/sports lid type) which the children can refill if necessary.
We are a Healthy School and request that parents ensure that the contents of lunch boxes promote a healthy diet.
The children may bring a drink (not fizzy) in an unbreakable container, with a cup or straw, to have with their packed lunch.
Breakfast and After School
The Breakfast and After School Clubs can provide meals for children as needed. This is booked directly with the clubs.
Free School Meals
Parents receiving certain benefits may be entitled to claim for free school meals. Further details and application forms can be obtained from the school.
