Our hot school lunches are managed by Staffordshire Catering Services and are cooked fresh in school every day. Parents use “Parent Pay” to pay online for school lunches.

Children are offered choice and variety each day and can choose a vegetarian option too.  View the current menus.

Means tested Free School Meals are available to some pupils. To find out if your child qualifies please contact the school office or visit the Staffordshire County Council website.

If your child is entitled to means tested free school meals they also attract funding to the school called “pupil premium”. This money is used to provide additional academic or pastoral support to children where required, priority for school clubs, free school trips and up to £50 per year towards uniform costs.

All pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal as part of the Government’s Universal Free School Meals initiative.

For those children who chose to bring a packed lunch we encourage parents to include healthy sandwiches, snacks and drinks (not fizzy) and support the school in maintaining its ‘Healthy School’ ethos and practice.

All children are encouraged to bring in a named water bottle to provide refreshment throughout the day.

Breaktime snacks are available to all pupils during the morning break, provided by the school kitchen. (the kitchen is separate from the school and so all snacks must be paid for in advance or on the day itself, there is no facility to “owe” the kitchen for snacks. consumed).

Note: all children under five receive free milk daily

Children should not bring chocolate or sweets to eat as playtime snacks but healthy snacks can be brought into school for playtime.
