If your child is in Key stage 1 (Reception, Year 1 or Year 2) they will receive a Universal free meal each day. This will automatically be set up on your SchoolGrid account as free. If your child is already eligible for Free School Meals this will also be set up on your account.

If your child is eligible for Free School Meals, it not only benefits you but provides extra resources towards your child’s progress and benefits the whole school community if you claim. The school receives further funding to provide additional resources to help your child make good progress. If you would like help with your application you can contact our Senior Family Support Worker, Ash Sayer, and she will be able to assist you.
From Year 3 if your child is not eligible for Free School Meals, a set meal is served each day costing £2.73. School lunches must be paid for in advance via your SchoolGrid account. Meals can be paid for in advance on a weekly, monthly, or termly basis.
There are 2 choices of hot meals followed by a dessert, or a jacket potato with dessert. The school caterers produce a menu based on the Healthy Food Guidelines of the Government. Children who do not opt for a school meal should bring a packed lunch. Specific dietary requirements are catered for through discussion with the catering staff.
Children in the Primary School eat lunch in their classroom. Pupils in the Secondary School eat their lunch in the School Hall, 6th Form Students eat lunch in their dining room.
