School Lunch

Our school meals are provided by Innovate IFG.  All menus adhere to the Government’s nutritional guidelines -so every choice is a good one.

Innovate IFG only use reputable suppliers and their quality assurance system ensures that all meals meet food safety legislation. They use fresh meat from local butchers to enable it to be traced back to the farmer. They strive to support local businesses and reduce food miles wherever possible.

A vegetarian choice is available each day. Salad or vegetables are available daily as well as fresh fruit. Bread without spread is also available to accompany the meal.

Almost all dessert choices contain fruit, from homemade puddings to fruit yoghurt and fresh fruit salads.

The menus still feature all the old favourites and all recipes have been improved to lower the fat, salt and sugar content. Most importantly your child can get at least three of their recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables each day by choosing school food.

From September 2022 the cost of a school lunch will be £2.45.


We cater for a wide range of dietary needs.  If your child has any food allergies please let us know so our kitchen staff can be fully prepared!
