Hot meals are cooked on the premises and are currently priced at £2.20 per day. The school has achieved the Advanced Healthy Schools Award and the ingredients used in our hot meals are fresh and where possible locally sourced. Essex School Meals Service are our consultants of choice and are committed to helping schools provide a first class catering service.
A four week rolling menu which meets all Government requirements guidelines is circulated to parents and children in advance in order that children can select which days they wish to eat.
Some children prefer a packed lunch and provision is made for all children to eat their lunch in comfort. As part of our Healthy Schools initiative parents are requested not to include sweets and chocolate as part of the packed lunch.
At break-time children are welcome to have a snack. At the request of the School Council only fruit and vegetables are allowed during snack time. The school provides Key Stage 1 children with a piece of fruit or vegetable free of charge and Key Stage 2 children may bring their own piece of fruit or vegetable for snack time.
