School Meals and Milk
Pupils receive free fruit each day.
Milk is provided free of charge each day for pupils who are either under 5 years old or in receipt of free school meals.
School meals are provided by Caterlink and cost £1.80 per day unless your child is in Reception, Yr1 or Yr2 where all children receive free school meals.
At lunchtime there is always a good choice of hot or cold food including chicken, beef, turkey and fish; fresh vegetables and a vegetarian option. All our menus meet the government food based guidelines.
Breakfast Club is open every day of the week from 8.00am to 8.45am. Cereal, toast and fruit juice are provided at a charge £1 per day and all pupils are welcome to join us and start the day in the best possible way.
Plastic water bottles may be brought to school to re-hydrate during lesson time and can be filled from the school water dispensers. For safety reasons, glass bottles or cans of drink must not be brought to school.
