Mrs C Blundell, Catering Manager The Lunchtime Team
We pride ourselves on the extremely high standards of our school meals. Our success is based on our continued commitment to offering children quality, nutritious and value for money meals provided by our independent, award winning catering department. All meals are planned and cooked by our catering manager in our own school kitchen, using fresh, local produce whenever possible.
Lunch is normally 11:55am to 1pm from Reception and Key Stage 1 children and from 12:05pm to 1pm for Key Stage 2 pupils.
However, due to the impact of the return to school guidance, from September 2020 until further notice the children in Pre-School, Reception and Year 1 (Little Squirrels, Oak & Willow classes) will have their lunch break between 11:30am and 12:30pm. All other pupils in school will have their lunch break between 12 noon and 1pm.
The daily choice of menu is enhanced by regular theme days, giving the children the opportunity to try new dishes from around the world. Children bringing packed lunches from home eat in the hall alongside the children enjoying school meals. Children are supervised by our lunchtime support staff team, who provide pastoral care as well as opportunities to participate in exciting playground games.
Payment for school meals is made by uploading funds onto ParentPay in advance of meals being taken. Currently meals are priced at £2.30 per day.
