The school cook, Agata, and her team, Petra and Leanne, work closely with gardening team to incorporate fresh seasonal produce in to the delicious meals they produce each day. Potatoes are used with roasts, raspberries in cakes and cucumbers and tomatoes can be found at the salad bar and we are proud of the kitchen’s Silver Food for Life award.

There is a choice of hot and cold food, including hot meat and vegetarian dishes as well as a seasonally changing salad bar manned by our Year 5 volunteers. There is also a choice of dessert dishes, including fresh fruit and yoghurt. Children make their choice during morning register and wear the appropriate coloured wrist band to ensure they get their choice. Provision is also made for children who require a special diet (vegan/halal/allergies).

Most families take up the option of a warm and nutritious lunch for their child.

Pupils in KS1 (Reception class, Year 1 and Year 2) receive age related Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM). You do not need to apply for these.
Pupils whose parents are in receipt of certain benefits receive benefit related Free School Meals (FSM) throughout their time in school, and school receives extra funding based on the number of pupils on FSM. We encourage all parents who think they may be eligible for FSM to apply ASAP, even if their child is getting UIFSM or brings a packed lunch, so that school receives the correct funding.
