School Meals & Snacks

Catering teamOver 95% of our children eat a school meal and we are very proud of this fact, particularly as we know school meals are more nutritious than packed-lunches

Where are the meals prepared?

School lunches are prepared by our caterers, Innovate Catering, who prepare food on site.

How can I order?

Orders must be placed via the IFG ordering platform and they must be ordered by midday Saturday for the following week. We do require meals to be pre-ordered.

Do I have to pay?

School dinners are funded by the Government and are free for all children in Reception (and this will continue until the end of Year 2). You just need to complete a form, which is available from the school office.

What if my child is a fussy eater?

Staff dine alongside the children in a ‘family-style’ service. This helps to support reluctant and fussy eaters whilst developing the social skills of all children. All children who have school dinners will receive a waited service, they will sit at the dining table and meals will be brought to them.

How can my child be encouraged to eat school dinners?

Staff eat with the children daily and encourage them to try new foods. The children are praised for their table manners, polite conversation and healthy choices.

Can I send a packed lunch in?

We have an uptake of over 95% of school meals and a low number of packed lunches. However, should you choose to send your child with a packed lunch we request that it is a healthy meal.

What can I include in a packed lunch?

No sweet fillings, chocolate snacks or sweets and only water to drink. Due to the growing number of serious allergies, we are a nut-free school, so please do not put nuts into the lunch box. Lunches should be in a named lunch-box.

Packed Lunch Guidelines

Can I send my child in with any snacks?

Healthy, nut-free snacks are allowed from Year 3 onwards, lower key stage children will have snacks provided.
