School Meals

Children may bring their own packed lunches to school and consume them on the premises.  If you wish to provide your child with a packed lunch from home, please ensure that the lunch is healthy. Fizzy drinks and sweets are not allowed in school. As we have children with nut allergies, foods containing even a trace of nuts are forbidden. 


Hot school meals are provided by School Grid (Dolce). Children in classes Foundation, 1 and 2 are eligible for Universal Free School meals (please ensure you cancel any meals booked if your child is absent or prefers a packed lunch).


If your child requires a hot lunch, parents are required to book using their School Grid account. Parents of children in Years 3-6 will be required to set up a direct debit directly with School Grid. The deadline for booking lunches is 9.30 a.m. 


Lunches are eaten in the school hall with Foundation Stage and Key Stage One pupils eating from 12.00 to 12.30 p.m. Key Stage Two pupils from 12.30 p.m. to 1.00 p.m. Children are supervised during the lunchtime period by a group of Lunchtime Supervisors, all of whom have First Aid Certificates. Lunchtime ends at 1.00 p.m.
