Lunch Information

We use Edwards and Wards as our catering suppliers and they are committed to providing the children with fresh nutritious menus. Lunches are cooked fresh every day and Edwards and Ward are a fresh food company, all of their fresh meat, fruit and vegetables are locally sourced to ensure the freshest ingredients possible without the food miles

Edwards and Ward are committed to providing meals for students needing special diets for medical and cultural requirements, wherever possible. Their nutritionist analyses the special diet forms you return to create a specific menu for your child and their dietary needs.


All pupils in reception, year 1 and year 2 in state-funded schools in England will be eligible for free meals. Children in year 3 & 4 also have the option of a hot meal and these are charged at £2.55 per day and can be paid on Parentmail.


If children do not want a hot meal they can bring a packed lunch which will be eaten in the hall with hot lunches.

As a 'Healthy School' we inform and encourage parents to provide healthy food and leaflets are available to provide ideas as well as information in our food policy.

All KS1 children (reception, year 1 and 2) receive free fruit at morning break time under the School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme.


Children in year 3 and 4 are welcome to bring their own morning snack in and as a Healthy School, it is school policy to ask parents not to provide sweets, biscuits and crisps.
