Parents are encouraged to apply for free meals even if you prefer your child to have a packed lunch, as this attracts valuable additional funding for the school.

Packed Lunches If your child would prefer to bring a packed lunch, please ensure that this contains no nuts or nut products (or chocolate spread which can be confused with Nutella), as we have children in school with severe allergies. Any drinks should be in a plastic container or carton.  No glass or cans of fizzy drink should be brought to school.  Please ensure that all lunch boxes are clearly named.

All food in lunch boxes should be eaten at lunch time. In addition, junior children may bring in a further fruit snack for morning break. Infant children have fruit for morning break provided by the school.
