School Meals

All children in EYFS and KS1 are entitled to 'Universal Infant Free School Meals'. Children in KS2 can order a meal through our provider, Chartwells. Please see the information below on how to order a hot school lunch.
Packed lunches may be bought to school. We encourage you to send in a packed lunch which will fit in with our 'Healthy School' policy of teaching children the importance of a healthy, nourishing diet.
Please note that no nuts or eggs are permitted due to child allergies in school
