Welcome to our school meals' pages

School dinners are cooked on the premises and are extremely good value at £2.15. Dinners may be ordered weekly from school and, for pupils in Key Stage 2, should be paid for in advance through our ParentPay online system. If you need to pay via cheque, please make cheques payable to ‘Warwickshire County Council’.

Free school meals can be provided to those who qualify for Pupil Premium. They are available to children whose parents receive either Income Support or Income Based Job Seekers’ Allowance. For further details please see the school secretary or the link below.

Since September 2014 all infant children (Reception to Year2) are offered a free school meal cooked on the premises by our amazing kitchen staff - Pam and her team, who work for Educaterers Ltd. There will still be a choice of 3 meals a day and you do not have to register to receive them – it is an automatic entitlement.

Children may bring a packed lunch if parents wish. We would ask that these be as healthy as possible and should not include sweets or chocolate. Glass bottles or fizzy drinks are not allowed. We recommend that you use an insulated lunch box throughout the year for health reasons.

There are six lunchtime supervisors who are responsible for helping children with their lunches, lunchtime behaviour and general supervision.

Key Stage One children will be given free fruit under the Free Fruit for Schools scheme at break-time. 
Key Stage Two children are allowed to bring in fruit or raw vegetables .
Every child is encouraged to bring in a bottle of water which he/she can drink at any time.
Our school meals come via Educaterers Ltd. (Food For Life Silver Caterers) and are divided into Week 1,2, and 3 on a rolling basis.


For our complete week by week, day by day in-depth menu choices see the Menus below.

A vegetarian choice is not available each day – if your child needs a meal other than those shown please contact your school cook in the first instance.

All meals are served with either, a potato dish, rice, pasta or noodles and a selection of seasonal vegetables and salads.

Fresh fruit (V) is served each day as an alternative pudding.

A choice of milk drink or Aqua Juice fruit cordial is served everyday as an alternative to chilled water. A bread basket selection and chilled water are available throughout lunch.

We do not offer the deli bags but can provide a packed lunch for pupils who receive free school meals if going on a school trip.


Please note that the menu may be altered from time to time; parents are advised to check with the school cook if necessary.
