Lunch Menus & Free School Meals

School Meals During Term Time


Midday lunches are cooked and served on the premises. Children have a choice of menu but currently there are reduced options due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Every effort is made to ensure quality and consistency of service provided,  and we are very keen to promote Healthy Eating and Healthy lifestyles choices to our children. We are committed to providing a healthy and nutritious menu and encourage children to actively take part in sporting activities during the school day as part of the curriculum and additional activities during lunch breaks and after school clubs.

Children will select a 'grab bag' style choice from the below menu.

Lunch Times:

Foundation and KS1 - 11.30a.m.

KS2  – 12.00p.m onwards on a rota.


All children from Reception to Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal and since September 2019 all children have been expected to have school meals. There will be NO OPTION to bring a packed lunch for your child. 

Please review the menu above, and spend some time the night before each school day talking to to your child about the menu and what options they can choose, so that they have an idea of what it is they like and what they would like to choose the next day. Children can be fussy eaters, but we will encourage children to try different options. Our lunchtime staff and support staff will be able to help.


A number of lunchtime supervisors are employed to supervise the children during lunch service.   If your child is unable to eat a specific food, please advise the school Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Coordinator Mrs Myland, so that we can discuss further, as medical evidence maybe required from your GP for specific allergies.

Children who misbehave or cause disruption of any kind during the lunchtime period will be dealt with in accordance with our Behaviour Policy.


Packed lunch may be brought from home to school in year 3,4,5 and 6 ONLY, please read our Packed Lunch Policy for more information and ideas on what to put in your child’s healthy packed lunch. Please be reminded that cold takeaway/fast food is NOT acceptable. We cannot accept 'hot' food for your child at any time as this can cause  health and safety or food safety issues and cannot re-heat food. If you want your child to have a hot meal, particularly in winter, then please consider school meals.
