School Meals and packed lunches

From January 2023, school meals will be provided by our new catering company, Lunchtime Co.

The menu will provide a variety of choices for your children and for all tastes. All meat served will be Halal. There will be a daily 'packed lunch' option if that is what your child would prefer - saving you time on making a packed lunch!


School meals are free for children from Reception to Year 2 as part of the Universal Infant Free School Meal Scheme. From January 2023 meals for children from Year 3 to Year 6 are charged at £2.50 each which can be paid for via PARENTPAY. Please do check if  you are eligible for Free School Meals by completing an eligibility check form, available from the office.

We ask that parents do not change their child's meal preference. Whether it be school meals or packed lunch, this option must remain the same for the half term. You can inform us of a change before the start of a new half term.

Paying for School Dinners
