School Dinners

We use a catering company called Aspens to provide our school meals service.  Cooked meals, including a vegetarian option, are prepared daily in our kitchen and children are offered a choice of main courses and puddings.  Salad and fruit are always available.  School lunches, both cooked and packed lunches, are eaten in the school hall.

Aspens menus include the best quality and freshest ingredients, sourced directly from growers and producers, ensuring they can maintain a robust supply chain and have complete traceability from the field to the plate.


Dinner Money

  • The cost of a school dinner is £2.65
  • School meals are ordered by parents using Parent Pay.  Details of this site can be obtained from the school administrator

School meals are provided to all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 free of charge. 

For older children Free School Meals are available to children whose parents are in receipt of other allowances.  It’s important to register for entitlement to free school meals, even if your child has a packed lunch – this is so we can receive additional funding (called the pupil premium) which we can use to help your child.

Packed Lunches
Packed lunches should be in a secure named container.  No sweets are allowed – instead, we encourage lots of fruit or vegetables.  Water is available for all children.  However, your child can bring their own drink in a non-breakable container – please avoid fizzy drinks.
