Our meals are provided by Hutchison Catering who are an independent family-run business delivering a refreshingly different range of catering services. The meals are all freshly cooked daily using local suppliers.
Eating a healthy diet enables a child to live life to the full and gives them a better performance all round, specifically helping with their concentration levels - which in turn affects achievement.
Children in Key Stage One (Reception, Years 1 and 2) are entitled to a free school meal. For Key Stage two pupils (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) the price is £2.30 per child per day.
In our primary schools our meals;
- have a three-menu cycle, allowing children to become familiar with the food served;
- are changed every term to reflect the seasons; and
- are written in consultation with pupils and cooks.
We are now able to offer four choices per day - a meat-based meal, a vegetarian option, a jacket potato or a packed lunch option along with sides and a pudding/fresh fruit/yogurt. The meals are balanced and are excellent value for money.
Children may choose any of the above options on a daily basis.
Due to the current situation with social distancing we are providing the meals on a 'take away' basis with staff delivering the meals to the children's classrooms, apart from Acorn and Pine classes who are continuing use the dining hall.
