We have tasty and healthy school meals cooked on site everyday by the dedicated kitchen team.
All our children from Reception to Year 2 are entitled to the universal free school meals. This means there is no charge for school dinners for parents.
Giving Children Choice
We operate a coloured band system for lunchtimes in order to ensure that every child gets their first choice of main meal for school dinner.
There are photos displayed each morning in the classrooms of the two choices of main meal for that day. Each meal will either be a ‘green’ choice or a ‘red’ choice. One of these options will always be a vegetarian dish. Children are helped to record their choice.
The kitchen will then cook adequate of each dish to ensure that every child gets their choice of main meal.
Just before lunchtime, the children will be given a wristband to wear – either green or red according to their choice – and this will be ‘swapped in’ at the lunchtime service counter for their meal.
There is always a lovely selection of desserts for the children to choose every day; this always includes a selection of fruit.
Dinner Hall Helpers
Children in Key Stage 1 are able to apply for the role of Dinner Hall Helper. They take their responsibility for helping children clear their plates very seriously and encourage everyone to try to eat as full a meal as possible.
There are a number of Lunchtime Organisers on hand to help children choose a balanced meal and to provide assistance in the Dinner Hall.
