Our school day includes lunchtime provision. You can chose to provide your child with a packed lunch or we can supply them with a hot meal. All children in Reception to Year 2 are entitled to Infant Free School Meals, which are funded by the government, if your child is in Year 3-6 payment for their meal will be required, unless you are entitled to free school meals.
Your child may be eligible for free school meals if you receive any of the following benefits:- Income support, Income-based jobseekers’ allowance, Income-related employment and support allowance, Child tax credit, provided that you are not also entitled to working tax credit and have an annual gross income of £16,190 or less, if you are supported under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, guarantee element of State Pension Credit, Working Tax Credit during the four-week period immediately after your employment finishes or after you start working fewer hours per week or Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7400 (from 1st April 2018).

Schoolgrid is our current provider for choosing and paying for school dinners. Click here for the Schoolgrid website, for information about signing up, please speak to a member of the office staff.
Our current catering company is Hertfordshire Catering Ltd and our cook, Mandy, has been providing wonderful school meals for our children for 20 years. Please see their menu in the side panel of this page.
If you decide to provide a packed lunch, please read our packed lunch guidance, which is also available to download in the side panel. Research shows that eating a healthy school lunch can positively affect children’s behaviour in the classroom. As you will be aware there is increasing concern about rising rates of obesity and health-related problems in children. As a school, it is part of our responsibility to help children learn how to eat healthily and, as such, we encourage you to follow to the guidelines provided to help you make informed choices for your child’s packed lunch. Water is always provided at the dining tables, so providing an additional healthy drink is optional.
All children eat in the school’s dining room and we believe it is an important social learning experience and one they will enjoy!
