Meals and drinks

How will I know what my child has had to eat each day?
School lunch menus are provided to parents in advance and daily/weekly choices are available on the school website homepage. They usually follow a 3-week cycle. Two choices are provided, including a vegetarian option. Children are asked to confirm their choice with their class teacher, at registration each morning. Sometimes there will be special lunches on a "theme" such as Valentines Day or Bonfire Night. School meals should be paid for in advance using the ParentPay system.

Alternatively, you may prefer to send your child to school with a packed lunch.

The current menu can be found on the school dinners page.

To find out if your child is eligible for Free School Meals, please speak to the school office or see link on the Cheshire West and Chester website for further information.


Are there any rules about what I can give my child for his/her packed lunch?
Yes, a balanced diet/healthy items are encouraged. Sweets/chocolate are not allowed.


Is drinking water available?
Children have access to drinking water in school. We do ask however, that children bring their own, named, water bottle to school.



Are snacks provided
Morning snack is available to buy in school for children in the junior year groups (Years 3, 4, 5 & 6). This normally consists of items such as toast, bagels, fruit juice etc. Children can also bring their own healthy snack.

We are a healthy school so healthy snacks are encouraged. Chocolate bars, crisps and sweets are actively discouraged.

We would also appreciate parents being considerate to any allergies within the school such as nut and sesame. Avoiding products containing these ingredients would be appreciated.

Children in key stage one are provided with fruit / vegetables during the day.
