It is very important for all children to eat a healthy, balanced diet. Research has shown that a child's concentration levels are much greater if they have eaten a healthy, balanced meal at lunchtime.
All of our menus include:
In addition to this we limit foods high in fat, sugar and salt such as deep fried foods and items containing pastry. We include oily fish, wholegrains and fruit based desserts. A freshly prepared salad bar is available each day as an optional extra.
If your child has a special dietary requirement or has an allergy to any food items, please consult with the head teacher who will liaise with the school's kitchen supervisor to ensure your child is catered for. Our daily menus cater for both vegetarians and Halal.
