Key Info

School Meals

The benefits of eating a balanced nutritious meal at lunchtime have been proven to lead to healthier, happier and more fulfilled children who are able to perform better. With this in mind children are encouraged to have a hot school meal, alternatively they can choose to bring a packed lunch from home.

Meals are provided by Norse and cooked on site, a copy of the latest menu is available to download below. In addition to these menus a jacket potato option with a choice of fillings is also available. Please take the time to go through the menus with your child so they are aware of the meals on offer. (Please note we are unable to provide the packed lunch option.)

Special Dietary Requirements

Special dietary requirements can be catered for, please contact the school office for further information. In 2014 the EU Food Information Regulations for Consumers (1169/2011) required businesses including schools to provide allergy information on food sold unpackaged. As school meal providers Norse have produced a list of the 14 food allergens. A breakdown of these can be accessed from the link below.

Ordering Lunches

Notification of children’s preferred choices is required on the Monday of each week. A lunch order form is available for your convenience and can be downloaded below. As meals are cooked to order, a lunch will only be prepared for your child on receipt of written notification. (Telephone requests will be accepted in an emergency.)
