Your children have 3 choices at lunchtime:
1. Your child may go home for lunch. Currently, no pupils take this choice.
2. Your child may bring a packed lunch – these should be contained in a suitable container i.e. a plastic lunchbox, and should not contain any breakable items such as glass bottles. Our school works to the standards of the Lancashire Healthy School Programme and therefore tries to ensure that children bringing packed lunches are provided with a healthy meal.
For some suggestions on contents of healthy packed lunches and information on school meals see the suggestions on the links below.

3. Your child may have school dinners – these are £11.00 per week payable in advance on Monday mornings.
All meals are wholly prepared on site and we have incorporated the popular Healthy Heroes meals at our school. Healthy Heroes has been designed to help early years and primary age children and their families make healthier food and activity choices. Health Heroes has proved to be very popular and engaging with our children.
