A tasty and nutritionally balanced cooked meal is available every day from our school kitchen, at a cost of £2.35 per day from 2nd June 2014. Children are also welcome to bring a packed lunch from home. Our school meals are provided by Lunchtime UK, a small company based in Cambridgeshire who pride themselves on serving delicious meals which are freshly prepared in our school kitchen using many locally sourced ingredients. Lunchtime UK hold the Silver Catering Mark from the Soil Association in recognition of their commitment to using locally sourced, seasonal and organic produce.

All children eat together in the hall, grouped around tables seating up to 8 children. Midday supervisors are at hand to help younger children cut up their food or open tricky packaging.

If you choose school meals for your child, it is essential that you pay for every meal in advance. We prefer to receive dinner money for the whole week ahead on Mondays (£11.75 for the whole week or £2.35 per day) or you may send in dinner money on the day of the meal. If you have paid for the whole week and your child is ill on a particular day, the money paid is carried forward to the next week. Please send money in a clearly named envelope.
