School Meals

Healthy School award

In 2008 we gained Healthy School status. We actively promote a healthy lifestyle across the school by modelling good practise and by having high expectations. These expectations are also mirrored in the quality of food and drink we encourage in school.

School meals are provided by Warwickshire County Caterers.

All pupils in the Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be able to receive a school meal at no cost from September 2014. This Government initiative is known as Universal Free School Meals. Although the children will not have to pay for school meals it is important that you still register for free school meals if you are eligible (families in receipt of Income Support or other specific benefits). This is because schools are able to claim a Pupil Premium of up to £1300 per child on free school meals to make sure each school's budget matches its community's needs. Parents can apply online on the Warwickshire Direct website (external link) or call 01926 742060 to apply or contact us for further information.

Meals for children in Years 3 to 6 are provided at a cost of £2.25 per day from September 2017.

Children may bring a packed lunch in a named container.

Children are encouraged to bring a separate plastic water bottle every day. Fresh drinking water is always available.

All Reception and Key Stage 1 children are given a piece of fresh fruit after morning playtime. Key Stage 2 children are encouraged to bring their own fruit.

Parents can register their children for the Cool Milk (external link) scheme, which is free for the under 5's.

Our school meals are prepared by Warwickshire County Caterers. Menus rotate on a three-week cycle, and can be read below:

School Cookery Club


Cookery Club members working hard.

Our school cookery club started in January 2010. It is a five week course offered to groups of Key Stage 2 children. It aims to broaden understanding of basic food preparation and general cooking skills in a relaxed and creative setting.
