Cooked lunches are served in the school canteen, by an outside catering company called Yum Yum, who provide an excellent healthy meal every day, with fresh fruit, yogurt or smoothies for desert. Children may bring a packed lunch as good nutrition is important, we encourage these meals to include sandwiches, yoghurt, fruit or similar.  There is no provision for heating food.
Fizzy drinks and glass bottles are not appropriate, however water is essential. Our Sustainable Schools Committee encourage the use of refillable bottles which can be refilled at the water stations around the school.
