School Meals


All infant children are entitled to a prepared school lunch with no charge.

Please click on the images of our Week 1 Menu and Week 2 Menu. 



From 8th April 2024, we will have a new 3 week rotational menu, please click on the images below for the weekly menus. 



Week 2 (1) Week 3

Whilst you may opt to send your child with a packed lunch, as a 'Healthy School', it is our responsibility to ensure the children in our care eat a balanced diet. Please remember we are a "NO NUT" school.
