If your child has food allergies, please complete a Special Diet Referral Form (form attached) and return it to the school office.  The ISS nutritionist will create a custom menu for your child.

You need to register your child and make payments at The current cost per day for school meals is £2.35.  If your child is absent you will not be charged and you will receive credit against the next payment. Parents may pay for the whole half term or term in advance if they wish.

If you receive Income Support or think that your child is entitled to free school meals, contact the school office for more information and see also:

The school has two canteens, one for infants and one for juniors, with staggered lunchtimes from 11.45am to 1.00pm. In the infants canteen, children from Reception classes go to lunch first. This means they have the canteen to themselves for at least 15 minutes before the first sitting children come out. We have found this particularly successful in helping new children get used to the lunchtime routine. Lunchtime supervisors are present in the canteen to assist children and to take them to the playground where they are also supervised. 


Children may bring packed lunches to eat instead of school dinners.  Please do not give children nuts or food containing nuts as we have several children in school who have severe allergies. We are striving to become a healthy school, therefore we encourage only healthy treats in lunch boxes (no chocolate, sweets or fizzy drinks).

If you wish your child to change to or from school dinners please be sure to notify the catering company in advance.
