School Meals

School meals are served in the dining hall. The meals offer a range of opportunities for students to try a range of foods.   The meals are nutritionally balanced and provide a range of food both that is both traditional and more adventurous.

Staff eat with their tutor group or key stage.

Lunch time is a period when staff can engage students in polite conversation and promote good manners. The provision of a school lunch encourages students to try new foods in a clam supportive environment. 

Students are given a choice of different meals, a traditional dinner, or a jacket potato with a range of fillings and salads or a vegetarian option. A range of traditional desserts and fruit or yoghurt are available on a daily basis. School lunches are pre-ordered and students can select from a 4 week menu. 

Parents of students who are not entitled to Free School Meals can opt to take a school meal or packed lunch for their child.

All meals must be paid for in advance at the office. Please ask at the school office for information if you believe you may be entitled to Free School Meals. Please note that until confirmation of free school meal entitlement is received all meals taken will need to be paid for. We cannot maintain an offer of a school meal to pupils where debt arrears have exceeded TWO WEEKS.

Parents can opt for their child to bring a packed lunch from home. Packed lunches are eaten in the dining room.

Packed lunches should not contain sweets; chocolate, fizzy or energy drinks and pupils with these products in their lunch box will be encouraged to save them for home.

Special dietary requirements can be catered for but students will need to make their selection from a 4 week menu. If there is not a suitable meal available alternative arrangements can be made.
