School Meals are provided by Nourish Contract Catering
We believe every child needs a satisfying meal at lunchtime, fuelling them for the afternoon ahead. Nurturing the importance of a healthy and balanced diet, Nourish provides a nutritious meal to 'nourish from within' by ensuring that the meals that are served are wholesome. This is done by ensuring that each meal is packed with the nutrients and vitamins, a variety of carbohydrates, protein and fibre. Nourish's menu is fully compliant with the School Food Standards.
School Dinners are free for all of KS1 and £2.35 for children in KS2.
Menus are sent home with the children at the start of the term so you can see what meals your children are eating at lunch time. Please ensure you complete the allergy form in the welcome pack if your child has a food allergy and dietary requirement.
