School Lunches

Our school lunches are provided by Castlefields.  They offer varied, fresh and healthy cooked meals which meet the Government nutritional standards, but always try to give the children meals which they like!  Wherever possible, ingredients are sourced locally.  


Universal Free School Meals and Free School Meals                                                                       

Children in Reception and Years 1 and 2 are all eligible for universal free school meals.  

If you are in receipt of certain benefits, you may be eligible for Free School Meals (this would continue when the Universal Free School meals finish at the end of Yr 2).  Please contact the school for details.

Both the above, still have to be ordered on ParentPay and we ask that all orders are done by Tuesday evenings as we email them through to JP Catering on Wednesday mornings.
