Dinner Menu


Our choices are based on a 3 week rolling menu. Parents make their choices online.

The cost for 3YO Nursery children is £2.45 per child per day.

The cost for Years 3-6 children is £2.55 per child per day.


Dinners are provided by the Catering Agency and we meet regularly, to discuss healthy options and choices and special diets.


Nursery children are served in the Nursery, at tables which are set out with proper cutlery and encouraged to make healthy choices.


Children from Reception – Year 2 are encouraged to take up the Government Universal Infant Free School Meal offer. This is a significant saving of approx £400 per year, per child.


Please click on the link below to see the school dinners being offered this term. Summer menus are a repeat of the Spring options.


Year 3-6 children can change to having to have a packed lunch if they wish. Please give us 4 weeks notice, in writing, at the office if you wish to do this.

Special Diets

If your child has an allergy, please complete the form below and return to This will then be sent to the Special Diets Team at Leeds Catering.

Packed Lunches


Children who choose to bring packed lunches are asked to follow our Healthy Schools guidance.


No nuts are allowed in school, due to the number of severe nut allergies.


We have invested in a heated Outdoor Classroom which is used for many activities including where some of our children have their lunches.  This is carefully monitored and only used when it is a suitable temperature. 


We also have many picnic benches around the school and in the warmer weather, the children have the option to picnic outside, which they particularly enjoy.

If you would like your child to change from having a packed lunch to a school dinner, please give us 4 weeks notice, in writing, to the email address.

Free School Meals

It is important that parents and carers of pupils who are entitled to free school meals, and those whose financial circumstances change, apply for Free School Meals.


This can save parents approximately £450 a year, per child and also affects the amounting of funding our school receives.


Parents and carers who think that their child may be entitled to Free School Meals can apply at the link below:
