School Meals

The Menu

Our current menu can be found here.

Due to the success of our online ordering system, we are now able to offer a wider range of options whilst still using fresh ingredients which are cooked on site.

Under the current restrictions, we are using a combination of family and waiter service to serve the meals which removes the need for children to queue and the ensures the food is freshly cooked and hot when served.

Our online booking systems means you can order meals on a day-by-day basis (minimum 24 hours in advance) with a selection of meal options. In addition, there will now be a daily dessert table with a variety of choices for the children to select from.

Please share the new menu with your child.

Available every day

Homemade fresh (wholegrain) bread, a selection of at least three different kinds of fresh salad, extra fruit.

Packed lunches

Children whose parents do not wish them to have a school meal may bring a packed lunch, to be eaten in the dining room.

Packed lunches play a significant role in a child’s weekly dietary intake, accounting for nearly one-third of their food consumption. Therefore, it’s crucial to ensure that these lunches are both balanced and nutritious, adhering to the same standards as school meals.

Regrettably, many lunchboxes contain highly unhealthy items, often filled with foods high in fat, sugar, and salt, while lacking in essential fruits and vegetables.

Ideally, a child’s packed lunch should encompass items from the five main food groups:

  1. Bread, Rice, Potatoes, Pasta: These starchy foods serve as a valuable source of energy. Packed lunches should feature food from this group, such as pasta salad or sandwiches.

  2. Fruit and Vegetables: These foods offer vital vitamins, minerals, and fiber. A balanced lunch should comprise at least one portion of fruit and one portion of vegetables or salad, or even more, like carrot or cucumber sticks, cherry tomatoes, and a piece of fruit.

  3. Dairy: To promote healthy bone and teeth development, one portion of dairy, such as cheese, yogurt or fromage frais, should be included in the lunch.

  4. Meat, Fish, Eggs, Beans: These foods supply essential protein for growth. A packed lunch should contain one portion from this category, like a boiled egg as a sandwich filling or a mixed bean salad.

  5. Drinks: Children should bring in a named water bottle each day. This should be filled with water. Juice, squash are fizzy drinks are not permitted. 

Please refrain from including the sweets in your child’s packed lunch.

A choice of only one of the following is recommended per day:

  • Cake / cake bar
  • Packet of crisps
