We have an individual catering contract with Principals Catering and they employ a kitchen team who cook on site in our school kitchen. Meals are served in the main school hall.The school keeps an oversight of the provision and also employs KCC to undertake checks on hygiene, food preparation and quality. The kitchen recently received its second set of top marks in the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.
This team also provides the food for our Breakfast Club and The After-School Club.
If you would like your child to have school meals please contact the school office. If you think you may qualify for free school meals the school office can also help you with this.
We have achieved ‘Enhanced Healthy School’ status, looking at promoting healthy lifestyles amongst the children in particular healthy eating habits.
If you send your child to school with a packed lunch it should not include any fizzy drinks or chocolate bars. Please try to include more savoury than sweet things, although we love to see lots of fruit!
