Since September 2014, school meals have been provided free for pupils in Reception and Years 1 & 2.

For all other pupils there is a school meal charge per day, speak to the school office for further information.

Packed Lunches 

Children may bring packed lunches if they prefer. Please support our healthy eating policy. Children are not allowed to bring sweets to school.

Please cut up all grapes, tomatoes and blueberries into half length ways, due to the size and possible choking hazard.

We have a no nut policy in school, as some children are so highly allergic to nuts that they risk life-threatening reaction if they are in too close a proximity to nuts.
