School lunches are provided by Taylor-Shaw and meals run on a banded system (red, blue and green). Pupils complete a menu choice sheet at the beginning of every term, selecting main courses from a range of healthy options. Pupils also have access to a fresh salad bar to supplement their lunch. Water is offered at every meal.
We are fortunate to have a very talented team of lunchtime catering assistants working at our school who are always on hand to support pupils in trying different types of nutritious food. The link below is particularly useful for any parents who want to find out more about school meals provided by Taylor-Shaw including prices and menu choices.
Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive universal free school meals. From Year 3 the cost of school meals is £10.75 per week (£2.15 per day), this should be paid promptly each week and can be paid in cash or preferably via the online payment system ParentPay. The School Office should be informed when changing meal options ie. from packed lunch to dinners or vice versa.
Please see our menu for this term:
Please find below downloadable forms to apply for Free School Meals for your child. Paper copies can also be provided by the school office.
If your child chooses to bring a packed lunch from home, we would encourage a balanced and healthy content. Here is a recommendation of the foods that would constitute a healthy lunch box and which foods to avoid. We do not allow fizzy drinks, chocolate bars or sweets.
According to the NHS a healthy lunch box should contain.
- Starchy foods like bread, rice, potatoes or pasta
- Protein foods like meat, fish, eggs or beans
- A dairy item, like cheese or yogurt
- Vegetables or salad and a portion of fruit
Below are excellent websites with hints and tips about creating varied and healthy lunch boxes.

We have a Fresh Fruit Bar every morning, where pupils from Key Stage 1 choose a piece of fresh fruit to eat during first break.
This gives us lots of energy to play and work hard after break!
