Our school meal provider is Taylor Shaw. We also use a system called Lunch Hound which helps children to make their choices when they arrive at school in the morning. Once their choice has been made, it is fed automatically to the kitchen so that when the children arrive in the dinner hall, they are reminded of their meal choice and it is served to them by the kitchen staff.
School meals must be paid for via Parent Pay
SNAG - School Nutrition Action Group
SNAG group is a group where pupils share their thoughts and ideas about food and nutrition within school. Representatives are able to take ideas from their peers about the food available to them in school and share them with Maddie (our amazing school cook) and even Taylor Shaw. Children are able to make suggestions not only about the actual food but also how to make lunchtime an enjoyable time for everyone. In the past, children have taken surveys within their classes, created posters of lunchtime rules and healthy food and packed lunches, they have chatted with Maddie and they have even taken some cookery classes!
If you have chosen to put your child on packed lunches can we remind you of the school policy on packed lunches. We are a healthy school and must follow government guidelines for any food consumed in school. Your child must bring in a healthy packed lunch. Fizzy pop, chocolate bars and sweets are forbidden (this includes fruit winders and long jellied fruit sweets). We have discussed at length with Taylor Shaw about biscuits and have decided that the children may bring one chocolate covered biscuit or piece of cake but this must not be a chocolate bar. Children may also bring one bag of crisps. For more information on packed lunches please read our packed lunch policy.
Medical special diet request
In order for a medical special diet to be put into place with the contractor Taylor Shaw a parent must provide a letter from a consultant or a dietitian, a letter from a G.P. is no longer sufficient evidence and cannot be accepted. Schools should also be aware that a local arrangement between the school and the kitchen on menu changes from non NHS care plans are not allowed. A child’s food dislikes around a current menu will not be accommodated as there are always three choices.
Any special diet current in place with a G.P. letter will continue to be honoured.
