School Dinners

School Meals

Our School Dinners are provided by LTS Catering, and all their menus meet the Gold Food for Life accreditation. A good variety of dishes are available during the week, including a vegetarian choice every day. Special dietary needs can be catered for.


Children in Foundation 2, Year 1 and Year 2 receive Universal Free School Meals. This means parents do not have to pay for school dinners because of the child's age.


Children in receipt of Free School Meals also do not pay for school dinners or school milk.

Packed Lunches

Parents who send their children to school with a packed lunch should ensure that no glass bottles are included. We would encourage all parents to send a healthy pack-up and so ask that fizzy drinks and sweets are not included. For the safety of those with nut allergies the school operates a "No-Nuts" policy, so please refrain from sending items that contain nuts. In addition, please mark your child’s lunch box/bag clearly with their full name and class.
