During lunchtime time children who remain on the premises eat a school lunch (which is cooked on the premises) or their packed lunch. All pupils will have a 30 minute sit-down lunch. Lunchtimes are supervised by trained Lunchtime Supervisory Assistants who provide table service, supervision, etiquette training and record what pupils have eaten.
School meals are ordered on the day during registration or in advance through our Ipay system with five or more choices of meal per day. Menus are altered on a termly basis and adhere to government nutrition guidelines. We encourage our children to have healthy packed lunches. We therefore discourage crisps and chocolates or any fizzy drinks in their lunch box. Each morning children who bring a packed lunch place their boxes on a key stage trolley to ensure its safekeeping. Water and milk is provided for children having a meal in the hall. A doctor’s letter is required for any special dietary requirements or food allergies. Nuts or products containing nuts are not permitted on site.

Payment for school meals can also be made through the schools Ipay ordering and payment system. Information of how to log-on and utilise this facility will provided after induction.
