School Meal Dietary Information
We have been providing our own school catering service for the last 3 years and create our own menus & deliver the catering arrangements in house. We have been awarded a 5* rating from the Food Standards Agency (2020). All our meals served follow the nutritional criteria of the Government Buying Standards for Food and Catering Services. More recently (January 2019) we implemented some new government guidelines and legislation. This means that we now provide all the calories for each meal prepared by the school. We also use low fat and reduced sugar in all our ingredients so that the meals we serve are healthy and balanced. Every primary school must be able to provide a two course meal at lunchtime with no more than 530 calories, including a drink. So have a look at out newly developed menus by the following the links below:-

Special Theme Days in School
We are celebrating our French theme week on Friday 15 February 2019 with a special lunch. The children will be sampling some French food and will try coq au vin & frogs legs (chicken stew with green beans), croquet monsieur, fromage, an Eiffel tower biscuit and sirop de cassis and we will post some pictures of our children enjoying the delights on offer soon.
Over the previous year we enjoyed some special Theme Days in school which gave our children an opportunity to try foods from all around the world. We celebrated Chinese New Year and the children enjoyed eating their meal with chopsticks. The menu consisted of seaweed, prawn crackers, chicken in black bean sauce, sweet and sour chicken, rice & noodles, fruit cocktail & ice cream and fortune cookies which went down a treat.
We had a special Valentine Treat in February & a St Patrick’s Day meal in March..
There was a Bonfire themed lunch in November
