School Meals

School meals are cooked in our school kitchen by Caterlink, our catering contractor. There is a daily hot meal and a vegetarian option. Your child may choose to have school meals all week or on a selection of days - Wednesday roasts and fish and chips on Fridays are firm favourites.

The current price for a school meal is £2.70 per day. All lunches need to be paid for in advance, through the Caterlink online payment system: 

We do encourage you to take a look at the menu (below) with your child to see what meals they may like to try. If your child has  a special diet, food allergens or intolerances, these can be accommodated and Caterlink would welcome a one-to-one meeting to discuss your child's requirements further.

Packed Lunches

Your child may prefer to bring a packed lunch to school. All lunch boxes are stored on trolleys in the classrooms. It is therefore advisable to ensure that their lunch box is clearly named and to consider the contents carefully. To ensure your child’s lunch remains fresh and cool, particularly in the summer months, it might be advisable to include a cool pack.
