School Dinners

School dinners are free of charge for all children in EYFS and Key Stage 1 (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) and currently cost £2.10 for all children in Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6). If you think your child may be eligible for free school meals please see the School Office in confidence.

Lunchtime for children in EYFS and Key Stage 1 is 11.30-12.30 and for Key Stage 2 is 12:30-13:30. Our school lunches are provided by Lancashire County Catering. All meals are freshly prepared on site each day using locally sourced ingredients.

Teachers take the dinner register during morning registration and children are offered a choice each day from 2 hot meals (one vegetarian) or a lighter hot snack plus a pudding. All food is locally sourced from sustainable and responsible suppliers. Our catering team are all trained and experienced in providing for children with diagnosed allergies, food intolerances and medical conditions.

The menu is available on the website under Parents’ Information. School dinners will be eaten as a class in a dining hall and all classes have a class Welfare Assistant.

Packed Lunches from Home

If you choose not to have a hot dinner from school or a school packed lunch then you can send your child in with their own packed lunch. It is important that this is a healthy lunch with at least two portions of fruit/veg. Fizzy drinks are not allowed and chocolate and sweets are not encouraged. We are a nut free school and nut and foods containing nut products are not allowed in school.

Fruit – In line with the NHS policy for healthy schools all Key Stage 1 children are provided with a piece of fruit each day. This is free of charge and the children will have ‘fruit time’ as part of their daily routine.

Drinks – If your child does not have school milk a drink from home will need to be provided in a named clear bottle each day. Fizzy pop or pure fruit juice is not allowed and water or sugar free juice is encouraged.
