Spring 2022 Allergy Lists


On the 13th December 2014 a new legislation called Food for Consumers Regulations (EU FIC) came into force. This legislation affects all businesses who serve or sell food. Below you can find the allergens that can be found in our menus.  If your child is allergic to any of the allergens in the menus please contact us so we can discuss how we can accommodate this.

Our menus are now checked by the LCC food in Schools team and we are pleased to report they have been judged as compliant with the school food standards,



Meal Pricing

Meals are free for all children in Reception, Year One and Year Two. We prefer all children in these year groups to take the provided meals as they are healthier than packed lunch alternatives and there is a lot of evidence to suggest that children who have a hot, nutritionally balanced meal at lunchtime learn and behave better in the afternoon. It also saves money for parents; it is estimated the providing a daily packed lunch costs around £400 per year.

If you child is in Key Stage Two (Years Three, Four, Five and Six) and are entitled to Free School Meals then their meal will be provided at no cost.

If your child is in Key State Two and is not entitled to Free School Meals then the daily cost is £2.40.


Free School Meals

Some children are eligible for Free School Meals in Key Stage Two. If you are in receipt of any of these benefits below your child may be eligible for Free School Meals.

  • Income Support
  • Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit with an annual income of less than £16,190 and do not get working tax credit
Please note: If you, or your partner, receive any working tax credits you will not be entitled to free school meals.

If you wish to apply please contact the school office who will talk you through the process.
