Food in School

School meals are provided by Caterlink, an education specialist provider. Caterlink uses seasonal produce, sourced regionally and locally to provide exciting, tasty and healthy meals for all pupils.
Our Kitchen Manager, Jane, has worked with our school for many years and produces great food from the quality produce Caterlink provides.  All lunches are prepared on site using raw, fresh ingredients. We are happy to discuss dietary requirements with you and have strict protocols for managing food options for pupils with allergies.
We operate a 3 week menu rota which provides parents with the opportunity to discuss lunch choices with their child.  This can be found below.
School meals are free for pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 through the Universal Free School Meal system.  To pay for your child's school meal you must be registered with Caterlink and can pay using the link  https://meals.caterlinkltd.co.uk/meals/sign_in  Please note that Caterlink run a credit only payment system where accounts must be in credit for a meal to be provided. All payments can be made online and the school cannot accept any money for school meals.
The Caterlink account allows parents to check balances, meal options taken and make payments to the account.
 
Please see the school menu below and some information about our exciting school meal provider.

Packed lunches

Please note that we are not able to keep packed lunches in refrigerated conditions.  Please do not send drinks in cans, glass bottles or other breakable containers. We are a healthy school and discourage fizzy/coloured drinks and sweets as part of a packed lunch.

The school cook can provide a grab bag for pupils who wish to have a healthy packed lunch. If your child forgets to bring a packed lunch we will endeavour to contact you. If we are unable to do so we will provide a school lunch and ask you to reimburse us later.

School Milk

Nursery and Reception children - are provided with free milk.  If your child does not want milk, please let the School Office know.

Year 1 to Year 6 children - if your child is entitled to free meals (not Universal Free Meals) then they are also eligible to have free milk.  Milk letters are sent out to parents each September. If your circumstances change and your child is no longer entitled to free milk, then you must inform the school office and then register to pay online as below.

If your child is not entitled to free meals and would like milk, you can register and pay online at www.coolmilk.com and follow the on screen instructions.

Children have access to water at all times.  Fruit snacks are provided free of charge to Early years and KS1 pupils. KS2 pupils also access fruit snacks as school funds this for them. We also operate with a KS2 recipe bag scheme where pupils take home vegetables on a rota basis and cook something at home with the ingredients.
