Just as children are laying the foundations for a life of learning and rich experience, they are also taking early steps towards a healthy mind and body. This is where food plays an essential role.
Our catering providers bring the fun and excitement of food to our youngest children. Colours, textures and taste are there to be explored and enjoyed. There is always something on the menu for each child to enjoy.
Our providers supply nutritious and balanced meals with varying menus which change each term. We strive to provide tasty and nutritious meals whilst impacting the environment as little as possible.
Our kitchens minimise the use of single-use plastics in the storage, perperation and serving of food.
Drinking water is freely available and children are encouraged to bring in reusable bottles. Dilute juice is not permitted in water bottles.
Alongside the work we do to reduce single-use plastics across the business, we also recycle our food waste into green energy through ReFood.
School meals should be ordered and paid for in advance through My Child in School App. If no choice is made, and your child is on our list for receiving school meals, then a meal will be order on their behalf automatically by the office. No choice will be made within the classroom by your child.
If you wish to transition between school meals and packed lunches the office and kitchen request a two week notice period. To make this request please contact the school office.
Our current menu can be seen below.
