We have 15 hour and 30 hour places in Nursery available!

School Meals

Our tasty and nutritious school meals are cooked on the premises by our talented Chef, Miss Cooper.
She provides a well-balanced meal which complies with the highest standards and are very popular with our children.
The below menu is indicative of the choice children have.
Miss Cooper also runs regular celebration meals, e.g. for Halloween, Christmas, and aligned to children's topics. All children have the opportunity to choose to take these special meals, even if they usually opt for a packed lunch.
For children in Years 3 and 4, lunch costs £2.20 per day or £2.10 for nursery school meals.
This is for a standard two course meal which includes a drink. Payment is made via ParentMail. We require two weeks notice if your child wishes to change from school meals to packed lunches.
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school lunch, although this must be ordered in advance.
