School lunches

We pride ourselves in supplying our children with excellent food. We feel that it is one of the most important parts of a child’s life – to eat properly. Eating a healthy diet enables a child to live life to the full and gives them a better performance all round, specifically helping with their concentration levels – which in turn affects achievement.

So we encourage all of our children to have a school dinner and we are glad to have such a high uptake of school dinners at our school. It’s good to know that our children are getting a well balanced and healthy meal every school day. See the information to the right for more details.
