Lunch at School
School Lunches are free to all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Children in these year groups must opt for School Meals every day or packed lunches every day due to the terms of Government funding.
For children in Years 3-6 school meals can be ordered following any regular weekly pattern. For example: Every Tuesday or Every day except Wednesday or Monday, Tuesday, Friday. It doesn't matter what pattern it is as long as it remains the same each week. Any changes to the pattern need to be notified at least three weeks in advance.
Charges for school meals are made on ParentPay. Payments should be made in advance. Please top up your account regularly so it always remains in credit.
Copies of the menu are available to download from this page.
In September the school and the Kitchen are working under guidelines in relation to COVID-19. Because of these lunchtime arragnements and provision will be different to normal. Below are menus that will be on offer. Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will eat their lunch in the school hall but all other year groups will eat their lunch in the classrooms. These will be served in take away style boxes and they will be provided with disposable cutlery.
We are unable to provide hot lunches for children in Nursery in September but hope to resume the service after October Half Term.
