School Meals

Fruit for Morning Break

Most children (and adults) cannot last the morning without a snack. Junior children can join our weekly ‘Fruit Club’ offering fresh fruit or fruit juice for £1 a week. All Year R-2  children receive free fresh fruit daily at playtime.

Children are not allowed crisps or sweets at breaktimes.



Many parents opt to buy milk through the “Cool Milk” scheme – details of how to apply on- line can be obtained at the office.


School Meals 

Children can have either school meals or packed lunches from home.  School meals are freshly cooked on site by Caterlink and currently cost £2.05 per meal (£10.25 per week). 

Caterlink now provide a "School Pack Lunch Bag" which consists of half baguette or whole sandwich with egg, cheese, tuna or ham filling; vegetable sticks; homemade cake or biscuit; whole fresh fruit apple or easy peeler orange. Please let Caterlink know via the School Office if your child would prefer a school pack lunch, a jacket potato or a hot school dinner.


Payment must be made in advance on the first day of the school week in an envelope please, marked with you child’s name, class and ‘Lunch’. Many parents now pay for half a term in advance. Cheques for meals should be made out to ‘Caterlink’.


Families may be eligible for free school meals , please contact the office for a form or contact our Family Liaison Officer, Caroline Soutan, in the office for free advice and support.


If a child is absent and misses a pre-paid meal, the cost is credited to the following week or half term.  Many children, who normally bring packed lunches, opt for the roast meal on Wednesday or the 'Friday Special'  - this always includes a main course with chips.



Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)

From September 2014 all pupils in reception, year 1 and year 2 in state-funded schools in England are offered a free school meal (UIFSM). This includes academies, free schools, pupil referral units and alternative provision as well as maintained schools.

If your child is eligible for Free School Meals, even if they qualify for Universal Infant Free School Meals, please still apply for Free School Meals as the school will benefit from additional funding.
