We have been very happy to work with Chefs In Schools, along with our own School Council, to create a menu that is healthy, nutritious and tasty! All of our food is cooked fresh in-house by our catering team and we are proud of the quality. We all recognise the absolute importance of healthy food for our children’s well-being and development and are committed to serving high-quality lunches every day. We have two meat-free days per week and fresh vegetables feature prominently on our 2-week rotating menu, available on the link below. Children can access jacket potatoes every day if required and a salad bar is available during every lunchtime.
Ordering and payments
Lunches are provided free of charge for children in Reception to Year Two as well as those families eligible for Free School Meals.
A vegetarian option is always available and the kitchen is usually able to cater for special dietary/medical needs if given advance notice – please contact the school office so we can help you organise this if necessary. For allergy reasons we are a nut-free school.
Unless your child is eligible for free school meals, lunches need to be paid for in advance, via the office or by using our online payment service Wisepay. Payments must be made on a weekly or half termly basis. If you wish to change your child’s lunch preference we need confirmation a week in advance, in writing, and this can only be done on a half-termly basis, unless there are exceptional circumstances. Please note, we are a cash-free school and Franklin’s office is only open between 2.30-3.30pm for payments and queries.
All children are encouraged to bring a healthy snack to school each day and are expected to have a water bottle from which they will be encouraged to drink water throughout the day.
We understand that a child’s birthday is a very special day, but due to allergies and our commitment to healthy eating we do not permit treats to be brought in, please respect this.
Breakfast club runs from 08:00 - 08:30 daily at a cost of £3 per session. Children can get involved in a range of activities and receive a nutritionally balanced breakfast.
