Our lunch break begins at 12 pm and the children have an hour to eat their lunch and have time outside. School meals are offered to all of our children from Reception upwards by Babs and Tracy, our wonderful staff from Hertfordshire Catering, and are freshly cooked on site daily.
Our children are offered a choice of meals each day; pupils make their selection each morning from the the Pupil Choice Menu. Menus are rotated on a three-weekly basis and offer a hot meat or fish, a hot vegetarian, a jacket potato or a sandwich option. Vegetables and salad are always available too.

Universal Free School Meals
All pupils in Reception and Years 1 & 2 (Key Stage 1) are now eligible for free school meals under the Universal Free School Meal scheme. We strongly encourage all of these children to take up this wonderful offer and enjoy our delicious school meals. For all our children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 (Key Stage 2) the daily meal cost for the 2016-17 academic year is: £2.30. Payment is required on the Monday before the meal is taken; we encourage parents to pay weekly or half termly with invoices issued half-termly in advance to aid with family budgeting (payment can now be made on-line - see below).
Alternatively, pupils may bring packed lunches from home; parents are requested to include healthy choices in the lunches and there should be no chocolate or fizzy drinks. The school has a no nuts policy, as we have children in school with severe nut allergies which could be life-threatening and so please ensure that peanut butter or nut products are kept for home.
Free School Meals
As we receive £1300 per child, we urge all parents who think they are entitled to Free School Meal/ Pupil Premium to apply even if your child is entitled to a meal under the Universal Free School Meals scheme.
Free School Meals are available for children of families on low incomes. Find out more information.
