Our School

Lunchtime Choices

During the COVID 19 pandemic our school has continued to provide meals for our children, their families and also vulnerable members of our community.

Food parcels are delivered as per government guidance and meal vouchers are also administered as and when these vouchers are available for our families.

At present we are offering warm packed lunches as an alternative to our traditional meal service. This is due to having limited space available to ensure meals can be taken in a COVID secure way.

Normal service will resume as soon as possible.


Hot Dinners

Our catering team provide delicious cooked lunches. The meals are nutritional, very well cooked and presented, offer excellent value for money and are prepared from fresh produce everyday. Please contact us or Find out more from Nottinghamshire County Council


Packed Lunch

A balanced packed lunch should contain:

  • starchy foods – these are bread, rice, potatoes, pasta and others
  • protein foods – including meat, fish, eggs, beans and others
  • a dairy item – this could be cheese or a yoghurt
  • vegetables or salad and a portion of fruit

Starchy foods are a good source of energy and should make up a third of the lunchbox. But don’t let things get boring. Instead of sandwiches, give kids bagels, pitta bread, wraps and baguettes. Use brown, wholemeal or seeded bread, not white bread
