 LUNCH MENUS

 

We want  lunchtime to be an enjoyable, healthy social part of the school day. To support this idea we invite the children to select their lunch each day from the menu provided. The menus run on a three weekly rota and are subject to some change.

Our cook and kitchen team work hard to make sure all our children have a healthy, happy lunch. They spend time listening to the children's ideas and try and vary the menu to suit. Our meals are all nutritiously balanced and are very, very popular.
