School Meals

Children either bring a packed lunch to school (please no nuts/nut products as we are a Nut Free school), or eat a hot lunch that is prepaid for and provided by Chartwells.

We are proud to work with Chartwells for your children’s school lunches. Chartwells believe that the key to fueling young minds comes from understanding both what they need and what they enjoy, which is why they develop nutritious and delicious food that pupils love, alongside helping to ensure a healthy body and mind. Their passionate culinary experts work closely with us to ensure every child receives healthy food, perfectly suited to meet their needs and dietary requirements. The current menu can be viewed below.

The current meal price is £2.97. Free school meals are now provided for all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children. Free school meals are also available for families who are receiving income support. Application forms are available from the school office or can be downloaded (see below).
