All dinner money must be paid online, there is a debt limit in place of £21, this is equivalent to two weeks worth of school dinners. All meals must be selected online, we are having increased instances of dinners not being ordered online, if parents do not order their children's dinners with them at home there is a possibility that they will not be able to have their first choice of meal.

We appreciate the importance of your child eating a well-balanced lunch that they enjoy, and promote healthy eating as part of our curriculum.
Our kitchen team work very hard to ensure that the children enjoy their school lunches. As a result, most of our children eat a school lunch with the rest bringing lunch boxes.
Every day there is a choice of main meals - including a vegetarian option - and a hot and cold dessert. In addition to this, there is a salad bar with homemade bread. The menu runs on a three-weekly cycle.
Children who have packed lunches are encouraged to bring a well-balanced, healthy lunchbox. Fresh water is available for all children on the tables and staff encourage the children to drink it. Our lunchtime assistants supervise your children and ensure that they eat a sufficiently balanced meal.
