Children may bring a packed lunch. The lunch must be brought in a suitable lunch box, with a close fitting lid. The box or container should be indelibly marked with the child's full name to avoid confusion. For the reasons of safety, no hot or fizzy drinks or glass containers of any kind can be brought to school. Please provide a cup, beaker or straw for the drinks, as we are unable to provide them in school.


Various breakfast items are also available during breakfast club before school. Please click on the menu below to see the current menu for each day. Please order any hot items the day before.
