School Meals and Healthy Snacks
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive a healthy nutritious lunch at no cost to you. Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) is a government initiative aimed at improving academic attainment for infant children and to help families save money.
Each child gets a healthy nutritious cooked lunch which includes a main course and pudding, water is always available in the school dining room.
The Lunchtime menu always reflect the seasons with different vegetables and fruit on offer. Our school aims to cater for those on special diets due to medical, cultural or religious reasons.
Hot meals can be ordered daily. However sandwiches need to be ordered a week in advance so please ensure that your order is placed with the school office by 9am each Friday. Please print a sandwich form here.
Good food provision in schools has been shown to lead not only to healthier children, but to improved attainment. The plan was brought in to help create a generation of children who enjoy food that makes them healthier, more successful and most importantly happier.

What are the benefits of this scheme?
Better health – a cooked school lunch gives the children essential vitamins and minerals they need to help them grow, develop, fight infection and have the energy to lead a happy and healthy life.
Better achievement and behaviour
There’s a link between what children eat at lunchtime in school, where they eat it and how they focus with their learning in the afternoon. It teaches them to sit down together, which develops social skills and encourages them to try new foods.
Healthy Snack times
Our school is part of the National School Fruit Scheme and each child receives a free item of fruit daily, which helps your child achieve 5 day.
Water is freely available throughout the day from the mains water coolers. In Early Years, children have their own cup and are encouraged to pour water from a jug at the snack table. In Key Stage 1 children are encouraged to bring water bottles into school.
Free school milk is available twice a week.
Chocolate, sweets and other snacks are not allowed in school and we ask that parents do not send in cakes and sweets as birthday or holiday treats due to allergies.
