School Meals

View the current 4-weekly rotational menu

A nutritious diet doesn't only affect physical health, but has a direct impact on your ability to study. Research has found that children who eat a healthy breakfast achieve better academic results and children who eat a healthy lunch are more focused and better able to learn. Well-fed children are easier to teach, and find it easier to focus in lessons.

To this end we have created a new menu incorporating and promoting fresh fruit and vegetables, where possible sourced locally. Some of the new dishes which have proven to be great hits have been the spicy chicken wraps, fish cakes with sweet chilli sauce and the traditional steak pie.

We think that we have something for everyone but if you feel we have missed something please help us by talking to the catering staff.
