We have been celebrating Black History Month tis October and plan to end the half-term with a selection of Caribbean and African food on Friday 23 October 2020.
Please send you child in for a school dinner on that day to fully participate.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, we will offering a reduced menu for the first few weeks in September whilst our pupils settle back to school. This will be reviewed towards the end of September and we will let you know if there is an update to our school meals offer.
Pupils can choose a school meal and have a selection of meals available in the PDF attached for your reference. All meat used in our meals is Halal. Parents who choose for their child to have a healthy school meal, must commit to a school meal for the current half term and cannot switch to a packed lunch mid-term unless you have a prior agreement from the School Office .
