School Lunch Information

Lunchtimes are a really fun part of the school day with lots of different delicious and healthy foods for your child to enjoy.

Our school's catering provider is Chartwells. They are the leading provider of catering services to schools across the country.  Their philosophy is Eat, Learn, Live which aims to educate young people about how to lead a happy, safe and healthy lifestyle while contributing to a sustainable world.

Each meal is freshly prepared every day and you can be assured that a school meal will offer, two portions of fruit and vegetables, a dairy food item rich in calcium for strong bones and teeth, starchy carbohydrate to provide energy and a protein source to support the body's growth and repair.
