School Lunches

I am pleased to inform our families, who observe a Halal diet, that as of the 24th April 2017, all Halal meals will be freshly prepared in our newly installed Halal kitchen. A selection of meals you will find on the new menu range from Halal Sheesh Kebab, Halal Keema Roll and Halal Pasta Bolognaise. The range of nutritionally balanced meals will be much better than the Halal packs we currently have which are cooked off site and re heated in our kitchen. I am looking forward to a much better range of foods and we hope the children will soon have their favourites from the menu full of fresh ingredients, prepared every day on our own site.

If you would like your child to have a school dinner, please pay £10.00 per week via Parent Pay.  If you still pay cash, please use the drop box outside the school entrance.

We look forward to more children joining us for a healthy meal in the middle of the day and as always, your feedback in this matter is most welcome.
