School Meals

"What's for lunch?"

We are very proud of the meals served each day at school.

Our Cook Mrs Shakespeare and her assistants Mrs Davies and Miss Culshaw produce lovely lunches. School meals cost £2.25 per day 

Children in Infant classes will be entitled to a free school meal from September 2014

Children are welcome to bring a packed lunch each day, if they prefer.

A copy of the menus can be found at the bottom of this page


Low effort packed lunches ideas  We ask parents to ensure that packed lunches brought from home contain healthy foods, in keeping with our Healthy Schools ethos .
