Lunches and Healthy Snacks

Pauline, the school cook and her team work hard to prepare nutritious and tasty meals. They are cooked freshly in the school kitchen.

The school uses HC3S who ensure that the children have three choices.  Please see the menus below. 

The children are asked to choose their lunch on a daily basis when they register in the morning. It is helpful for the younger children if you have discussed the choice in the morning before they arrive in school.

All children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free lunch and most children take up this offer.  Children may bring a packed lunch from home too. Please provide your child's lunch in a lunch box not a plastic bag.

Lunches for Key Stage 2 children must be paid for (unless your child is entitled to a Free School Lunch) or please provide a packed lunch in a lunch box. Meals can be chosen on a daily basis which means children can choose a school meal or a packed lunch on different days.

Children who arrive to school without a packed lunch will be asked to choose a school one.  Late lunch boxes will not be accepted at the School Office.

To pay for your child's lunch please use  Sco Pay. There is a link to Sco pay on the Home page of this website. 


Children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 are provided with a piece of fruit at break times.  Children under 5 years are entitled to free milk too.  Milk can be purchased for children in Key Stage 1.

In Key Stage 2 children may bring a piece of fresh fruit or a small sandwich or roll from home for a snack at break time.
