Parents can choose whether their child has a school meal, packed lunch or goes home at lunch-time. School meals are good value, good quality, healthy, balanced meals and are prepared and cooked on the premises. With effect from September 2014 the government introduced a new initiative named Universal Infant Free School Meals and, through this initiative, the government now provides funding to enable schools to offer a free lunch to every pupil in reception class, year 1 and year 2. School meals are served in the hall where we have a self-service system with a choice of hot and cold main courses and desserts, and include salads and fruit choices. Special diets can be catered for on request. Please see a member of the school office for further details if your child has a food allergy. Throughout the year we hold a number of special theme day lunches and parents wishing to sample our school meals are always welcome. If you wish your child to make a change from one arrangement to another then this should be done for the beginning of a new half term, with two weeks advance notice being given to the headteacher in writing. If arrangements need to be changed in an emergency please contact the school office.
