Edwards and Blake are our school caterers: they operate a ‘cafeteria style’ school meals service in which the children are offered a selection of hot and cold food which is freshly prepared and sourced locally. Jacket potatoes and salads are served daily. Halal meat is served twice per week, a vegetarian option is also always offered. Food is clearly signed as meat, Halal and vegetarian. They quality of the food offered is excellent and parents are warmly invited to come and try some.
Payment for meals should be made in an envelope clearly marked with the child’s name, class and the amount enclosed and paid termly in advance. Payments should be made via online School Gateway. If you receive income support, your children are entitled to free meals. Information on how to apply may be obtained from the school secretary. All children in reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for free lunches thanks to a governmental initiative.
The alternative to a school meal is a packed lunch or to return home. Children who bring a packed lunch eat in the dining room at the same time as the rest of the school. Lunches should be brought in a plastic box with the child’s name clearly written on the top. We do not provide plates or cutlery for packed lunches. Water is available. We cannot accommodate glass ‘Thermos’ flasks, bottles or cans of any kind, but we do allow plastic flasks, pre-packed cardboard containers with an integral straw or screw top drink containers.
