Keep Growing

Our lunches are provided by Chartwells who use locally sourced ingredients, with a choice of hot and cold main courses and puddings. Children are encouraged to choose a balanced meal, before selecting a pudding. There are vegetarian options available, as well as a salad bar, on a daily basis. Parents and children are invited to view the weekly menu, which is on display outside the front entrance and via the web link below.
