School Meals, Packed Lunches & Allergens

School Meals

We provide healthy balanced meals because they:

  • Improve young people's concentration and performance in school.
  • Promote health, growth and development.
  • Increase resistance to illness.
  • Introduce good habits for later life.
  • Are freshly prepared food.

Please see the school meal menus below for Autumn Term 2022. We will start with Week 1 when we return on Monday 5th September.

Packed Lunches

If you decide that you want your child to have packed lunches we ask that these are healthy balanced meals, so we have attached some guidance for you below.  Please be aware that we will not take food away from a child (unless is causes severe allergies for other children e.g. nuts).  If we have any concerns over the contents in packed lunches we will contact parents to discuss this with them. 

Bringing food into school for events

Any food items that are brought into school to share with the children e.g. for birthdays, need to have the ingredients and allergens clearly labelled (including that they are suitable for vegetarians so that we can share with all children) on the outer packets.  If we do not have this information the food items will be sent home.  Whole birthday cakes cannot be sent in as we do not have the resource to be able to divide this amongst the children.

Please see the guidance for this attached below.

We are a 'nut aware' school which means we will do everything we can to avoid nuts on our premises.  This is because people who attend our school can and do have severe allergies to nuts.
