School Lunches provided by Edwards & Ward
Children in year R, 1 and 2 are entitled to a Universal hot free school meal at lunchtime in line with the Government initiative. This meal will be ordered in the classroom each morning at registration.
Children in years 3 to 6 can either bring a packed lunch or have a hot school lunch, which costs £2.15 and is payable online via Parentmail or at the office in advance. School lunches can be paid for on the day, by the week or month or termly in advance.
We ask parents not to include nuts in lunchboxes or as snacks as we are a nut-free school.
Children are allowed to bring squash or juice in a bottle or carton but this can only be drunk at lunchtime (only plain water can be drunk in class).
Please note that fizzy drinks, thermos flasks and glass bottles or containers of any kind are not allowed in school.
