There are 3 possibilities for your child at lunchtime:


  • School dinner; children should bring dinner money to school on a Monday for the days they wish to have a school dinner. A school dinner currently costs £2.60 per day.
  • Children may go home for lunch if written permission from parents is given. Please note no Road Crossing Patrol will be on duty at this time.
  • Packed lunch is eaten in school under the supervision of Lunchtime Supervisors. 


All children will be expected to go outside to play at lunchtime. Parents who wish their child to remain indoors should collect them from school at the start of lunchtime and return them at the end of lunchtime. Supervision of individual pupils is not available.



Nut Allergy

We have an increasing number of pupils in the school who have a nut allergy. We would request, therefore, that you do not send any nut-containing products to school.
