Hot Dinners

Mrs Dent and our catering team provide delicious cooked lunches. The meals are nutritional, very well cooked and presented, offer excellent value for money and are prepared from fresh produce everyday.

Due to Christmas Dinner on Wednesday 19th December, the menu has changed for Thursday 20th December. On that day we will be serving Hot Dogs followed by Cheese and Crackers.

From 5th November, the Porkies mentioned in the menu are now sausages, and Apple and Blackberry crumble has been replaced with Flapjack.

Packed Lunch

A balanced packed lunch should contain:

  • starchy foods – these are bread, rice, potatoes, pasta and others
  • protein foods – including meat, fish, eggs, beans and others
  • a dairy item – this could be cheese or a yoghurt
  • vegetables or salad and a portion of fruit

Starchy foods are a good source of energy and should make up a third of the lunchbox. But don’t let things get boring. Instead of sandwiches, give kids bagels, pitta bread, wraps and baguettes. Use brown, wholemeal or seeded bread, not white bread.
