School Meals

All of our children in EYFS, Y1 & Y2 receive a free hot meal in school every day. The children in these year groups may also bring in a packed lunch from home if they prefer to do so, although we do encourage the children to take up the offer of a hot school meal each day.

Children in Y3 upwards can choose to order lunches at the reasonable price of £2.40 a day on our Weduc system, or they can bring in a healthy packed lunch from home.


Our school meals are cooked onsite in our school kitchen by Leicestershire Traded Services (catering).
