Healthy Meals On Offer Every Day
Our fabulous award winning kitchen endeavour to use locally sourced produce where possible. We are proud to offer healthy choices for your children.
We have homemade soup and freshly baked bread on a regular basis. We offer lots of fresh fruit and we steam all our vegetables. Our salad bar offers a wide choice daily and we always have 2 main courses to choose from which are freshly cooked along with baked jacket potatoes and homemade desserts.
We hold special theme days, where we try new foods from around the world and we also ask the children to come up with ideas of foods they would like to try. We pride ourselves on encouraging the children to eat their lunch and try different foods. Our pupil ambassadors have been sharing their ideas with the kitchen team and, as a result, we have had Chicken and Sweetcorn soup, spicy chicken and we are looking to expand our selections of sandwiches.
The examples below are just a small selection of the menus we have on offer each day. We have a vegetarian option daily and in addition to the ‘Sweet Treat’ options, we always have yoghurt and fresh fruit available.
