School Dinners

Our school menu rotates on a 3 week cycle and all our meals are freshly cooked by Mr Pharro and his team in the kitchen.

Our school menus need to be balanced to meet the Government standards for school food.  There are restrictions placed within the standards as to what can and cannot be served, and these include the number of times per week certain foods can be offered.  Our menus offer a good quality cooked meal with ingredients sourced locally where possible and contain a range of dishes that will assist with developing your child’s eating habits/choices.  Many children when sat with their peers are often more willing to try new foods so please help us to help you by talking positively about new foods when your child comes home from school and praise them for trying new things.

Parents, carers or grandparents are invited on a rota basis to share lunch with their children – usually on a Wednesday.  See the calendar, or our events page, for details of when your child’s class have their ‘parents/carers to lunch’ day.

Please see the link below for details of our school dinner menu for this period.  Please download and print off if you wish to.
