**please note lunchtimes are reduced in line with the requirements within our Covid-19 Risk Assessment.
Children who are not having a school meal can bring a packed lunch or go home for lunch.
School meals cost £2.30 per day. (£11.50 per week) They are freshly prepared each day in our school kitchen. We have an individual menu designed in consultation with pupils, parents and the Headteacher. It is very important for all children to eat a healthy, balanced diet. Research has shown that a child's concentration levels are much greater if they have eaten a healthy, balanced meal at lunchtime. Halal meat and vegetarian options are always available on the menu.
Children choose their meal at morning registration. This ensures they get what they want.
Due to Covid-19 we are currently not offering our Friday only dinner option.
If your child is on a special diet for medical reasons, special arrangements are made. Any food allergies should be reported to the school office.
Your choice of lunchtime arrangements must be followed for the full half term. Preference forms are available at the office in the last week of each half term, if wish to change your choice.
