School Meals

We believe that lunchtime should be a pleasurable, social time for all our children. All our children therefore eat together with their friends in the hall. School meals are cooked on the premises by a very experienced cook and her team. Lunch consists of two courses and there are always several choices including a vegetarian option. Juice or water is provided with each meal.  The current school dinner menu can be viewed, by accessing the MySchoolLunch website here.

 All key stage one children are entitled to free school meals since 2014.  It could save you over £400 a year and benefit your child's school too!


Term Dates - 2022/2023

Please note the new term dates for 2021-2022. The changes are in response to legislation for an extra day holiday to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We have reduced the length of the original Christmas break and put the extra days onto the May/June half term when hopefully everyone will be able to enjoy better weather and travel, if restrictions are lifted!
