School Lunches

Our school meals are provided by ABM Catering Solution provides delicious meals and use high quality ingredients which go into the food prepared.

ABM catering runs a three week menu rotation where parents can choose the meals they would like their children to have. There is always a vegetarian option available to the children. 

Menus are clearly displayed within the canteen and within the infant classes to help the children with their choices. Copies of the menus are also available from the school office.

Lunchtimes are from 12.00 - 1.00pm (KS1 children) and 12:30pm - 1:30pm (KS2 children). All children will have their lunch in the main school dining hall in the primary section. You can provide a packed lunch for your child in a named lunchbox, or you can organise for your child to have a school dinner.  Please let your child's class teacher know if your child has any food allergies.

Packed lunches

Packed lunches are to be in a named lunch box or lunch bag. We kindly ask parents not to provide sweets and fizzy drinks for this purpose, and in the interest of safeguarding children with allergies ask that parents refrain from providing foods that contain nuts.

Provide your child with enough food to give them enough energy to get through a busy school day, but please do not feel you have to provide more than is necessary. The children are also provided with a healthy snack of a fruit or vegetable item and a drink at school and can access this whenever they wish to have it.

School dinners

If you have organised for your child to have a school dinner, your child will need to chose from two different colour options; Red or Green. Red is the hot meat based option, Green is the hot vegetarian option. School will provide you with a menu for you to keep at home to help your child choose what to have each day. Please discuss the options with your child before school to help them make a choice they are happy with. Some of the anxiety children feel when they first start school can be based on how they feel about what they have to eat and having to try new foods, so if you wish to send your child into school with a packed lunch for the first few weeks and then move to school dinners then that is not a problem.
