School Meals

All of our meals are cooked fresh on the premises daily, by our experienced Catering Team, and a significant proportion of pupils choose the option of a wholesome hot dinner at lunchtimes.  Menus are produced and published half-termly, and there is always a choice.  We cater for all dietary requirements, so please let us know if your child has a particular dietary need.
 
Pupils can select to have a cooked meal every day, on specific days of the week, or on occasion, ad-hoc.  Daily dinner numbers are taken from the dinner register completed by teachers at the start of each school day so, if parents/pupils decide that at short notice that a hot dinner is appropriate on any particular day, the request can be accommodated.

 

For those that have not yet sampled our fayre, here are a few tempting facts from our cook: 

  • we use as much local produce as possible;

  • our meat is purchased direct from the butcher, and is roasted on the premises;

  • a fresh salad bar, and fresh fruit, are available daily;

  • our bread, on offer daily as an extra accompaniment, is home-made;

  • we use only locally-sourced, free-range eggs; and

  • there is always a vegetarian choice available.

 

Above all, our meals are tasty and, at a price of £2.10, represent good value for money. 

 

Food Allergies and Intolerances

Information about the ingredients in our school meals is available either by enquiring at the School Office, or from staff in our School Kitchen when customers make their selections.

 

Our aim is to cater for as many children with a specific dietary requirement as is possible, and our Catering Manager would be pleased to discuss individual pupils’ catering needs with parents, by appointment. 

 

Please note, however, that: 

  • Under European Union law, food manufacturers and suppliers are only legally required to provide information on the EU top 14 allergens* in their products. Any foods that fall outside of these 14 allergens may not be fully listed in a product’s ingredient list. (*Gluten, Milk, Egg, Fish, Nut, Peanut, Soya, Crustacean, Mollusc, Celery, Mustard, Sesame, Sulphites, Lupin)

  • A number of allergens are used in our School Kitchen on a daily basis. Whilst all members of our Catering Team are trained to manage the risk of cross-contamination, we are not able to guarantee that meals will be completely free of any allergen. 

 

If you feel your child’s medical dietary requirements are too high-risk to be catered for by our School Kitchen, please provide alternative meal arrangements.

Please note that menus may be subject to change in exceptional circumstances.
