All our school meals are cooked onsite in the school kitchen. As from September 2020 the cost for all KS2 children is £2.30 per day.
Payment for the meals should be made on a Monday morning and be sent via the basket in your child’s class. The kitchen needs a week’s notice if your child would like to start having a school lunch or wishes to change to sandwiches. Children can choose to have a lunches on specific days rather than all week, just let the office know when those days will be.
For more information on school meals go to www.myschoollunch.co.uk/derbyshire.
Alternatively children can bring a packed lunch. This must be kept in a bag/sandwich box with their name on it. We encourage children to bring a healthy packed lunch that includes fruit and vegetables. Children are not permitted to bring fizzy drinks in their packed lunch.
We ask all children to bring healthy snacks for breaktimes Monday – Thursday. Friday is treat day when children can bring a snack of their choice, or purchase an item from the French Friday team (croissants, crepes, brioche)
