School Meals


Lunchtimes at School

The school works in collaboration with Alliance in Partnership (AiP) to provide a delicious range of healthy meals which are cooked on the premises. An example of a termly menu is included in your induction pack.

From September 2014 all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 in state-funded schools in England are eligible for free school meals (UIFSMs). Taking up your entitlement to this Universal Free School Meal offer, clearly gives families a substantial saving.

As a health promoting school we strongly encourage parents to take up this offer of a free hot meal for their child. Children who do not have a hot school dinner can bring a healthy packed lunch. No sweets or fizzy drinks please.

In Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to 6) the cost of a school meal is currently £2.10.

You can if you wish take your child home for lunch however most children enjoy the social time with their friends after lunch and this is a valuable part of their personal, social and emotional development. Our lunchtime supervisors oversee the wellbeing of all children during lunchtime and they report directly to the Executive Headteacher.
