The School provides a wide selection of healthy foods at lunchtime offering a main choice each day or the option of a filled jacket potato, or roll during the summer months.

Themed days are a regular feature and provide a further variation to an otherwise excellent range of choice. Throughout the year we offer a variety of themed meals. The themes for the last school year included World Book Day where we offered Hogwarts Burger and Peach Melba Dessert, Swashbuckling Pirates where the menu was Scampi, Chips & Peas with Shortbread dessert. The children enjoyed a Teddy Bears Picnic (indoors due to the weather!)  where they enjoyed sandwiches, carrot sticks, sausage rolls & muffin dessert and A Day by the Sea where the menu was Fish & Chips with Ice Cream dessert. Look out for the themed meals this year!

From 1st September 2019 School Dinners will be priced at £2.60 per day (the first increase since September 2014). Meals can be taken from 1 to 5 days per week with the ability to order your lunch daily BUT MUST BE BEFORE 9.30am or in advance for up the three weeks. Schools meals are ordered through the Lunchshop website. If your child is absent from school due to holiday or illness school trip, meals should be cancelled from home or you will be charged.
