We are very proud to have our own catering kitchen on the premises enabling our Catering Manager and Catering Assistant to offer a healthy, exciting and innovative menu.
Lunchtimes are supervised by our Midday Supervisory Assistants. The School Admin Officer, Kate Waite, and Catering Manager Cynthia Ody are happy to discuss menus or a child’s particular dietary needs with parents.
How to Order Lunches
Lunches are to be ordered and paid for via Parentpay. Here are guidelines on how to make a lunch booking. Please ensure that you book and pay for the right type of lunch – Roe and Fallow class are Key Stage One Lunch and Muntjac and Sika are Key Stage Two Lunch.
Alternatively, children are welcome to bring in a healthy packed lunch consisting of protein, carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables. Please remember that we are a NUT AWARE SCHOOL and do not send anything in a lunch box that contains nuts.
We discourage parents from providing sweet foods, although we do accept that small amounts may be included.

Children in KS1 are all entitled to free school meals, following the Government initiate brought in September 2014, however we still ask that you submit a form with your child’s menu choices.
