School Meals

From September 2014 all children in YR, Y1 and Y2 are entitled to a free school meal each day. However, please ensure you still complete a free school meal form so that we identify which children are entitled to pupil premium funding.  We adopt a pre-ordering system in school which allows the children to pick what they would like for their lunch from a choice of either a meat, vegetarian or salad option.
Children may also bring a packed lunch.  This should be in a plastic box with the child’s name and class on the outside and should include a drink.  As we are a healthy school we do not allow chocolate bars or sweets and would encourage you to provide your child with a healthy packed lunch.  If you prefer your child to go home to lunch, please collect him/her at 12.30 pm and return him/her at 1.30 pm.
