Lunching in school
Chartwell’s Catering provide freshly cooked hot meals.
There is a range of options including vegetarian, with salad bar and fruit served daily.
The school menu is updated twice a year and is available here on the school website, school app and posted in noticeboards on the school grounds.
The new lunch menu will commence on the first week back from the Easter half term 2019 and will run up until we break up for the October half term.
School lunches and themed lunch menus are free for those in Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and on Free School Meals. Children in all other year groups must pay the daily charge of £2.30 or £11.50 for the week. Cash payment can only be accepted and paid in advance.
School menu Update (28/06/19):
The current school menu has been updated slightly due to some of the dishes not favoured by the children. Chartwell's Catering have incorporated Meat-free day for each week and they will trial this until the end of the school term.

Lunch Box Guidelines
Please ensure you do not send nuts in your child’s lunchbox as some children have allergies.
Please ensure your child has sufficient food in their lunch box to last them throughout the day including snack times. A packed lunch should be provided in a clearly labelled lunch box or bag.
Healthy lunchbox suggestions
Try to vary the type of bread such as wholemeal, granary or high fibre white bread.
Also make sandwiches from different kinds of bread including bread rolls, French bread, bagels and pitta bread as well as sliced bread. Use different sandwich filling each day- preferably including a fruit or vegetable.
Fruit and vegetables
Some fruits to try:
Seedless grapes - these should be cut
Satsuma, tangerines or clementine
Dried fruit such as apricots, dates or raisins
Some vegetables to try:
Baby sweet corn
Grated carrot and raisin salad
Having fun is thirsty work so please supply plenty of drinks for your child.
Avoid sugary and fizzy drinks. Instead use water or fruit juice. Please do not send drinks in glass bottles.
