Children may bring packed lunch or have a meal provided by Nottinghamshire County Council School catering service. We offer a family service and all meals are cooked daily in our school kitchen. Our hot school meal service continues to be extremely popular. We ask parents to provide a sensible and balanced content to their child’s packed lunch.

The menu is varied over a three week period to ensure a good variety of food types; fewer items high in fat, sugar or salt, plenty of fruit and vegetables to contribute towards the target of five portions a day and including foods high in omega 3 i.e. a nutritionally balanced diet.
Universal Infant Free School Meals
From September 2014, all children in reception, year 1 and year 2 at state-funded schools in England became eligible for free school meals, as part of the national Universal Free Infant School Meals scheme – a registration form will be provided by the school when your child joins.
Free School Meals
All children attending state-funded schools are eligible to receive a free school meal if their parent receives certain benefits. Details of this can be found through the following link; http://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/learning/schools/school-dinners/free-school-meals/ or you can contact the free school meals team by telephoning 01623 433009. You can now also register for free school meals online using the following link: https://emsonline.nottscc.gov.uk/CitizenPortal_LIVE/Account/Login?ReturnUrl=%2fCitizenPortal_LIVE
It is important that all parents who receive one of the benefits listed register for free school meals (even if your child is currently in reception, year 1 or 2) as this will enable us as a school to claim additional funding through the pupil premium allocation which is used to raise attainment.
