School Lunches

Children can either take a school lunch, prepared on the premises, or bring in a packed lunch.  Due to Covid-19, the school dinner menu has been amended and will be eaten in classrooms.  The situation will be reviewed at the beginning of October following any further Government guidance.

We can offer guidance on what to include in a packed lunch; as a Healthy School we are keen for our children to enjoy a nutritious and well balanced diet.  School lunches are prepared on site by Herts Catering Limited who are able to cater for children with medical and dietary requirements.

From September the  Early Years children are given a weekly menu choice letter every Wednesday, to be returned on the Friday, with the lunch choices for the following week.  Then from the Summer term the children will be able to choose their own meal each day.

Year 1 and Year 2 children will be asked for their meal choice each morning at registration. A poster displaying the menu options will be displayed in class.   The meal options from September 2020 are as follows:

Packed Lunches

Children with packed lunches should be able to cope with opening all containers and eating the food by themselves.  Storage is minimal so please only send cold drinks inside the named lunch box which are stored in the classroom.  In order that children have a healthy, manageable lunch we ask that lunch consists of the following: small sandwiches, portions of fresh or dried fruit, cheese, yoghurts and one sweet biscuit.  No sweets.  Please send drinks in cartons or plastic flasks only, no cans or glass bottles.  We are a ‘nut-free’  school so please  ensure packed lunches DO NOT contain peanut butter sandwiches or nuts of any kind as we have children in the school with severe allergies to these foods.


Our school provides dairy products subsidised by the European Union under the European school milk scheme. A carton of milk can be provided for children on a daily basis.   If a child receives Free School Meals he/she is also entitled to Free School Milk.    Milk can be ordered through Cool Milk, please see the link below, forms can also be collected from the School Office.
