All age groups eat together in the school hall. This is important to us as we enjoy the social aspect of eating together. We have a number of staff on hand to help and encourage children whilst eating.
All children in the Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes are entitled to Universal Free School Meals.
However, if you have a child in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 it is important that you apply for Free School Meals if you are eligible. School government funding for 6 years is linked to the number of children eligible for Free School Meals.

We are fortunate to have all of our food cooked freshly at the Junior School site in a purpose built kitchen.The Federation have now taken ownership of the kitchen and all menus and the cooking of the meals is 'in-house'. They prepare balanced nutritious meals each day on a three week menu cycle. A vegetarian option is always offered.
We believe it is very important for children to eat a sensible and balanced diet so that they have plenty of energy to enjoy the school day. If you are providing your child with a packed lunch please try and make them healthy and avoid processed food such as chocolate, biscuits, crisps and sweets.
