All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children are entitled to a free school meal.
Lunch prices for children in other year groups are £2.10 per day - £10.50 per week.
Our new three week school menu starts on Monday 3rd of April 2017, with a choice of four main courses including a vegetarian option and a selection of puddings prepared everyday by our school’s catering team. In addition children also have a choice of salads to choose from. The menu is designed to encourage a balanced diet and children are encouraged to make healthy choices. Meals are eaten in the main school hall.
We aim to provide varied, nutritious, value for money meals for your child. We want to help your child feel relaxed, well fed and safe at lunch time in readiness to continue their learning in the afternoon.

Our friendly cook uses best quality ingredients to prepare fresh, tasty, healthy lunches daily using highest health and safety standards.
Paying for School Meals
Unfortunately we can no longer accept cash/cheque payments for school lunches via the school office.
We are working together with JOINOS to offer you an online, convenient way to pay and receive information about school lunches. JOINOS can be accessed on PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
New to JOINOS
Help screens will be available to take you through the process. Save the link to see menus whilst on the go.
Please register even if your child usually takes a packed lunch to ensure they are only coming in for a meal when you want them to. By using JOINOS you will be able to check meals taken, balances, make payments, receive account top up reminder, see the current menus and receive advance notification of new menus.
Please ensure you pay in advance to avoid receiving an invoice at the end of each academic year.
Children can also bring their own packed lunch from home. They will eat their lunch, along with the children taking a school lunch, in the hall. We ask that packed lunches are brought to school in named containers. For safety reasons we do not allow glass bottles or containers or hot liquids in flasks. As part of our healthy school campaign we ask that children are encouraged to bring lunches that support a balanced, nutritious diet e.g. sandwiches, fruit, vegetable sticks, yoghurt and water to drink. We would ask parents to support us with this by not including sweets in lunch boxes.
Free School Meals

Our school milk is ordered through a company called Cool Milk. All children who are under five are entitled to free milk but parents still need to register on the Cool Milk website to be able to receive the free milk. You can order your child’s school milk in either of two ways.
