School Dinners

School meals are provided by Harrisons Catering who cook on site in the school’s kitchen.

Our menus meet school food standards and offer a wide range of dishes tailored to the individual needs of each school.

They use high-quality, sustainably-sourced, seasonal food. Their menus feature organic ingredients, British free-range eggs, Red Tractor-certified cheddar cheese, pole and line caught tuna and fresh, British-sourced meat and poultry. 

We operate on a rotating 3 week cycle.

From 1st September 2021 school dinners will be charged at £2.45 per day (£12.25 per week) for key stage 2 children (Years 3-6). 

Meals must be paid for in advance. School dinners can be paid for termly/half termly or weekly (payable on the Monday for the following week).

Please note that from the 1st September 2014 school dinners are free for all Reception and Key Stage 1 children (EY2 and Years 1 and 2).

An example of our termly menu is available here, and these are shared with children and parents to ensure children are happy with the choice.
