School Meals

Our school meals are cooked on the premises by catering staff from Absolutely Catering.  The kitchen staff are Mrs Reed (cook), Miss Chiocci and Miss Williams.  They deliver a very high standard of service to our children and have achieved the 5 Star, Outstanding Healthy Schools Award, from the Liverpool City Council Environmental Health Team.


The children enjoy freshly prepared hot meals, pastas, jacket potato with filling, salads, sandwiches and healthy desserts.  They can bring a packed lunch from home but we do ask for at least one week’s notice if children are going to change from one to the other.


Ever wonder what your child has had for dinner?  Can they not remember?  Check out the menus above to find out for yourself. Each day the children have a choice of hot and cold meals which operate on a 3 week cycle.  They are encouraged to try new things but can leave something if they dislike it.  We also offer a daily vegetarian choice and through consultation can cater for pupils who require specific diets e.g. those with nut allergies.  Occasionally the menu can be subject to change depending on deliveries.

If you think you may be eligible for free school meals please complete the FSM application opening the link below and pass your eligibility code into the school office or you can contact the One Stop Shop in Broadway to complete an application. If you need any assistance please call into school and we will give you our full support.  


All children from Reception to Year 2 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals regardless of your income.  For children in Years 3 to 6 a school lunch is £1.80 per day, £9.00 per week.  Dinner money should be sent into school each Monday in an envelope clearly stating your child's name and class.


We strongly encourage parents of all our children to apply for free school meals if you feel you qualify, even those in Reception to Year 2 who are entitled to the Universal Free School Meals, because not only does this help you and your child, it also helps the school by bringing in additional funding to support all our children's learning, via the Pupil Premium funding.


Children are supervised during meals and on the playground by our lunchtime supervisors and teaching assistants who actively join in games and are all first aid trained.
