Our school meals service is delivered by Eat Culture, Nottingham Catering, an award-winning catering service that is part of Nottingham City Council.

Eat Culture believes in putting children first, ensuring they enjoy a healthy, balanced school meal that meets School Food Standards. Numerous research studies have shown that nutritious food helps children to concentrate and do well at school, and Eat Culture uses locally sourced and organic food to give children a nutritious school meal.

Payment should be made on Monday for the full week.  Money will be carried forward to the following week for any meals missed through absence.

Children may bring packed lunches.  Drinks should not be in a glass container or cans.  Packed lunches need to be appropriately healthy and nutritional – if we have concerns about the contents of a child’s lunchbox, (eg. not enough food, too much chocolate or “junk food”), we will bring this to your attention.

Supervision of children on site during the lunch break is delegated to our team of  Midday Supervisors.  Children are expected to follow the day-to-day organisation of lunchtimes and carry out the instructions of the supervisors.

At morning break, children in the Early Years and Key Stage 1 will receive a piece of free fruit or vegetable.

Pupils in Key Stage 2 but may choose to bring a snack in from home. As we are a healthy school, we suggest snacks should be fruit, vegetables or a cereal bar.
