School meals are prepared on site by Aspens Services. They produce high quality food using local produce from local suppliers.
There are three lunch options for children:
1. To have a School Dinner cooked on site
2. To bring a Packed Lunch to eat at school
3. To go Home for Lunch
School dinners for all infant aged children are free and are cooked in the HAJ kitchen. We also offer a packed lunch option to pupils, this will include a cheese sandwich on brown bread with salad and a choice of any pudding available on the day. All children will be able to choose their menu option from pictures on the classroom white board. The children will then choose their vegetables or salad and their pudding themselves.
Pupils in Y1 and Y2 will be given a colour band to wear when they go out to lunch, that they will then hand into to the lunch time staff to get their meal. This should hopefully help some children remember their choice. Pupils in Reception are taken into lunch by their class teacher who has the list of meal choices with them.
The bands relate to 1 of four options:
- Red: Main Meal option
- Green: Vegetarian option
- Yellow: Jacket Potato
- Blue: Cheese Sandwich on Brown Bread
The cost of a school meal is £2.20. Please click the link to find out how to pay for school dinners

NB: Crisps only allowed on Fridays
Lunch at Home
Children can go home for lunch if they are collected and returned by an adult. All children leaving the premises during the school day should have written permission from a parent and must sign in and out each time they go home for lunch
Morning Break Snacks
Fruit is provided free of charge at break time for all infant aged children.
Junior children are encouraged to bring a fruit snack to enjoy during morning break. Children in Y6 operate a Fruit Tuck Shop where children can buy a piece of fruit for only 20p. This is subsidised by the school.
It is important that children drink plenty of water. This has an impact on their health and their readiness to learn. Please send your child to school with a named re-sealable bottle suitable for water. Please note that no other drinks are acceptable in the classroom. A pure fruit juice with a packed lunch is acceptable but… NO sugar based or fizzy drinks are allowed.
