The children all stay for dinner at lunchtime and have a choice of meals each day.
Scroll down for school dinner menus.
You can choose to provide your child with a packed lunch each day which they would take to the dining hall at lunchtime.
Most children have a school dinner each day. They get a choice of either:
– A Traditional lunch consisting of the traditional type of school meal like meat pie and vegetables, or fish pieces and chips with a hot pudding (see menu below).
– A Vegetarian option is also available.
– Either a Jacket Potato option will be available with a variety of fillings.
Each day your child will choose what they want and the order is prepared in the kitchen.
Costs and How to pay
The school operates a cashless system via ParentPay. This can be accessed using the following steps:
Search 'ParentPay' in Google, click the link and login.
School lunches cost £2.20 per meal.
There is no limit to the amount of money held in a child’s account, and it does not have to be paid on any set day. Although the school does operate a zero tolerance towards a debt which means all school meals need to be paid for in advance.

Fruit in school
As part of the government’s healthy schools initiative, the school receives fruit to give freely to our Infant children each day. The types of fruit include apples, oranges, pears, bananas – even carrots.
If any child in school wants to bring their own fruit to eat at playtimes that is fine, although it should be clearly labelled with the child’s name and class on it. We do not allow sweets, chocolates or fizzy drinks to be brought into school. Sometimes, when there are spare pieces of fruit from the Infants this is shared out to the KS2 classes.
Water in school
The latest research about learning has shown that children are quite often dehydrated when they are in school. If they are dehydrated they will not learn as well.
We have water coolers around school that dispense cool filtered water.
Children are asked to bring their own named water bottles to school to use and refill from the water coolers.
Many children take their bottles home at night and bring them to school with cold water in. This makes the start of the day a lot easier.
