School meals

We are delighted to welcome our new Catering Manager, Jen Andrew into our school. We are all very excited about providing freshly cooked, nutritious and balanced lunches over a 3 week cycle. All ingredients are locally sourced where possible. Burtons is our main Butchers and the Modern Greengrocer for our fruit and vegetables. If your child requires the vegetarian option, please could you notify the office a week in advance. If you have any questions regarding the menu, or about any specific diets ie gluten free, please do not hesitate to come into school and speak to Jen. She is in school from 9 am and is very happy to answer any queries you may have. The first couple of days have been very exciting and we have had lots of good feedback from the children with many happy faces!
