Our school meals are cooked onsite by our school chefs in the school kitchen. They are healthy, well balanced, nutritious and most importantly tasty. Using locally sourced ingredients they contain the essential vitamins and minerals a child needs to help them grow, develop, fight infection and have the energy to lead a happy and healthy life.
Menus are nutritionally analysed and approved by a nutritionist to meet the new guidelines which have nutritional standards.
- Fresh meat and poultry are used which is sourced from Yorkshire and the East of England.
- Fresh local fruit and vegetables are used whenever possible.
- Food is prepared and freshly cooked each day.
- Fat used in baking does not contain hydrogenated fats.
The menus are on a three week cycle and change each term.
Lunches may be purchased on a daily basis in order to offer greater flexibility and choice
Monies are brought on the day, preferably in cash, and always in a named envelope. The cost in 2015/16 is £2.10 per meal – £10.50 per week. The menu changes each term and these are sent home as well as published online. They run on a three week cycle.
From September 2014 the Government introduced free school meals for children in Reception, Year one and Year two. Please click on the attachment below for further information.
