Our school meals are catered by Dolce. The meals have been designed specifically to promote a healthy and balanced diet. Learners have the choice of a hot meal inclusive of a vegetarian option. The kitchen source local produce where possible.
Costs and Ordering
Live Kitchen is an award winning ordering and payment system. You can pre-order meals from home, view recipes, check artificial ingredient information and block dishes which contain certain allergens.
The school meals cost £2.58 per day for Key Stage 2 children. This needs to be paid by direct debit via the Live Kitchen system. All pupils in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 are offered a universal free school meal (UFSM).
Free School Meals
Parents in receipt of certain types of benefit may be entitled to free school meals. If you think that you qualify, please contact the admin team who will advise you on how to check your eligibility and claim. Even if your child is too young to pay for school meals, it is important that you fill in the free school meals paperwork as it impacts on the funding the school receives.
We are a ‘nut free’ school. Please do not send in any nut products in snacks or packed lunches.
It is very important that learners drink plenty of water during the day to keep themselves hydrated. To help our learners have access to water we allow each child to bring a small plastic bottle of water that they can have in class and these can be refilled throughout the day. These bottles should be named.
Learners are allowed to bring a 'healthy snack' e.g. fruit/veg, plain breadsticks, dried fruit etc to school to eat at morning playtime. Crisps, sweets, biscuits and chocolate are not permitted.
Additionally, EYFS and Key Stage 1 learners all receive one piece of free fruit per day which they eat in the afternoons.
All learners under 5 years of age are provided with a free carton of milk each day. Learners over 5 can buy a carton whilst they are in EYFS classes.
