School meals are provided by the Local Authority Catering Services and are available to all children accessing the morning session and those who attend full days.
The school meals are healthy, nutritious and varied, providing the children with a hot meal on a daily basis. Each lunch is 2 courses with a main meal and a desert.
Children with specific dietary needs will be catered for including Halal, Vegetarian and any allergies and intolerances.
Lunchtime at School is a happy, sociable time where a variety of healthy foods are tasted and eating skills are developed. All the children sit down at the tables together to enjoy the experience. A specially selected menu is devised and sent to parents each term. Please have a look at our current menu.
The cost of the school meal is:
£2.50 per day, £12.50 per week for Nursery 3 children (3-4 years).
£2.00 per day, £10.00 per week for Nursery 2 children (2-3 years).
