School Meals

The school kitchen is ran by Mrs Slattery, our school cook, and her assistant, Mrs Wellman. They are an excellent team and work hard to make sure the food offered is excellent. The kitchen runs a three week rota (please see the link below) and all children choose their choices with their parents in advance to ensure the children enjoy their lunches.

We have a band system in place at lunch time so that we are able to provide a table service. Each class teacher gives the children a coloured band before they go up for lunch each day, the colour of the band depends on your child’s meal choice that day. By having the band system in place, children can sit down at their table as soon as they enter the dinner hall and the welfare assistants will take their lunch to them.

Pupils in Years Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive Universal Free Meals as pert of a Government scheme. Once your child reaches Year 3, meals are then chargeable at £2.30 per child.

If your child has any allergies or special dietary requirements, this information will be recorded by the school office and catered to by the kitchen team.
