We are fortunate to have a modern, well-equipped kitchen on site, which allows us to provide hot, fresh meals to our children each day. Working with Lancashire Country Catering Service, we offer a wide choice at an affordable price.
Our Current Menu Choices (A paper copy is available from the office)
Nut Free Policy
We have a number of children with nut allergies in school. With a view to keeping our children safe and well, we operate a nut-free policy and therefore it is essential parents check the ingredients lists on items included either as a snack or in a packed lunch.
Dietary Requirements & Additional Choices
Our kitchen staff will always endeavour to meet the needs of children with dietary requirements. Please inform us if this is the case and we will provide guidance on which meal options are appropriate and/or adaptable.
To provide the greatest choice possible, the following additional options are available:- (Option C)
Monday, Wednesday & Friday - Sandwiches - A choice of Tuna, Cheese or Ham.
Tuesday & Thursday - Jacket Potato - A choice of Tuna or Cheese fillings.
ADDITIONAL VEGETARIAN OPTIONS
Where there is a on the above menu, a vegetarian version of the dish is also available. (e.g. Quorn) Children must request this at the time of ordering.
Cost & Payment
Under the Government's Free School Dinners Scheme, children who are in the infants (Years R, 1 & 2) are entitled to a free lunch. This is automatic and there is no need to fill in any forms.
For children within Key Stage 2, lunches are priced at just £2.30 per day and can be paid for via our ParentPay service. We ask that, where a lunch isn't required every day, days are kept consistent. (e.g. If lunches are only required three days a week, as long as it is the same three days, this is fine.) We require two weeks notice of any changes.
A small number of children prefer to bring a packed lunch from home. This is allowed, however in an effort to promote healthy eating, we do ask that the following are not placed into lunchboxes.
- Carbonated drinks of any kind
- Chocolate bars
Please note that there are no refrigeration facilities available, although we ensure that all lunch trollies are placed in areas away from direct sunlight.
