School Lunches

Our lunches are freshly made each day by our own Catering Manager, overseen by the Trust Area Catering Manager.

We develop our own school compliant menus, using local suppliers where possible.  

When possible, vegetables grown in our own school garden (planted and cared for by the children) are used in school meals.

We encourage all children to take up school meals; these are free of charge to children in Key Stage 1 (Reception, Year 1, Year 2).

Parents of Key Stage 2 (Year 3-6) children are usually keen to continue these and find them to be very good value for money.

Live Kitchen

Our termly menus are made available on School Grid and orders and placed in advance.  We usually offer a choice of two main courses, and one meat free option.  

School meals should be ordered and paid for in advance via School Grid. We will register parents for a School Grid account and instructions about how to access the system will be sent to you.

Please contact the school office for details if you require help to access School Grid.

Free school meals are available to pupils in receipt of, or whose parents are in receipt of, one or more of the following benefits:

  • Universal Credit (Provided you have an annual net income of no more than £7,400)

The allocation of free school meals in school is extremely discreet and orders are placed via Live Kitchen irrespective of whether parents pay direct or are in receipt of free school meals.
