School Meals

  • School meals are provided by NORSE and are cooked on the premises. Parents help their children select their menu choice from a list sent home before the beginning of each week. As well as a main choice and vegetarian alternative, school packed lunched and jacket potatoes are offered ever day. Children who do not have school lunches may bring a packed lunch from home.
  • All children in Reception, year 1 and 2 are able to have a free school meal each day.
