School Lunches

Our school meals are provided by The Pantry

Jacket Potatoes are available every day, with a choice of these toppings:

  • Cheese
  • Baked Beans
  • Tuna

Hot tomato pasta is available every day.

Allergies & Food Intolerance

Please make sure you keep The Pantry aware of any allergens to ensure your child is receiving the correct food.

Lifestyle and Religious Diets

If your child has a particular diet for religious or lifestyle reasons, please fill the Special Diets form below and return it to us.  We provide at least one vegetarian option every day, and we think that this will be sufficient for most people with special diets, as you can manage this yourself by making the appropriate meal choice.

The meat we serve is not HALAL or Kosher. The menus clearly show if a meal is vegetarian, or what meat or fish it is.

We think this caters for anyone who is vegetarian, pescatarian, Halal or Kosher; and for people who don’t eat beef, fish, shellfish, lamb or pork. 

If you require a vegan meal, or if you have any questions or problems, please get in touch.

Free School Meals

If you are receiving benefits and you are not currently getting Free School Meals, please consider applying, especially if your circumstances have changed.

Apply Online

Please apply on-line.  It is much quicker and you will get an immediate answer.  You may need to create an account, but you should already have one if you applied for a school place on-line.

Use this link:  Free school meals application form

When you apply, you will probably see one of these responses:
“Not Found” means Not entitled to Free School Meals
“Found” means Entitled to Free School Meals
“Not Found -Not entitled-Pending” means your benefit claim is being processed, and they will keep checking.

Paper Application

Please apply on-line if at all possible. Paper applications take much longer to process. The council are requesting on-line applications due to the large number of applications they are receiving and many of their staff working from home.  The forms are available below.


Some forms are available both as a Word Document, or as a PDF document.  Alternatively, ask the school office for a paper copy.

Packed Lunch

If your child does not wish to have a meal prepared by school, they are invited to bring in a packed lunch from home. These should be healthy and should not include sweets, chocolate or fizzy drinks. Please be aware that we are a nut free school so any food products containing nuts are not allowed.


Your child may bring a snack into school to have during morning breaktime. Please ensure this is a healthy snack of fruit or vegetables.
