Milk is now available to ALL children at lunchtime - whether they have a school lunch or bring sandwiches.

Children in nursery, reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with free fruit each day.

We employ our own school kitchens provide superb nutritional meals each day. The weekly menu is healthy and delicious. 

From September 2014 children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 can receive a free school meal. 

However if you would have been entitled to Free school Meals please fill in the forms which are available at the school office as it may enable your child to have funding for further support in their lessons.
