Our school meals also cater for specific diets and lifestyle choices, including vegan and Halal.

The school also provides a free breakfast for all of our pupils, either being bagels and/or cereal and fruit.

The children have their breakfasts and lunches in the classroom with their teaching team, as this supports our ethos of building family style relationships with them.

If you require a hot lunch please email the office on  Lunch costs £2.27 per meal unless your child is in receipt of free school meals.

Menu choices are made by your child each morning.  Menus work on a three-week cycle.  Please see the attachment below for the most up to date menu
