Hot Meals

The school is supplied with hot school meals from 'Willoughby Foods Ltd'

From September 2014, children in Reception, Year1 and Year 2 were eligible for free school meals under the Government Scheme - 'Universal Free School Meals for Infants'. We strongly encourage and promote this initiative. We urge all parents with children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to take advantage of the 'Universal Free School Meal for Infants'.
