In September 2014 the government introduced Universal infant Free School Meals (UiFSM) for all children in Reception, year 1 and year 2. Our school meals are cooked in our state of the art school kitchen with fresh ingredients.

Children in the junior years can bring in a packed lunch if they would like to.  It is important that it is suitable and will give them the energy to work and play in the afternoon! As such they should not bring in fizzy drinks, crisps, sweets or chocolate. We have children in school who suffer from severe allergies to different foods, particularly peanuts. Peanut based foods are not allowed in packed lunches. However, we cannot guarantee that the school is a nut-free environment. For advice on the contents of a nutritious and healthy packed lunch please refer to leaflets held in the school office.

If you have financial difficulties your child may be eligible for free school meals. Application forms for free school meals are available on the right of this page, from the School Office or the Education Department.  Children who are eligible for free school meals attract Pupil Premium Grant funding and may in turn also be entitled to financial help with other areas of school life including clubs and school trips and visits - read more information here.

Children are permitted to have breaktime snacks but this is restricted to fresh fruit. We believe that this policy is also in the interest of dental hygiene and healthy diet.
