Our catering provision is provided by Aspens Catering. Each day, children are offered a choice of freshly prepared and cooked hot meals, pasta bowls, jacket potatoes, sandwiches and a salad bar, all with vegetarian options. Dessert, fruit and yoghurt are also offered every day.
The meals are very good value for money at £2.35 per meal.
All children in years Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to free meals, as we receive Universal Free School Meal funding from the government. Our policy is that all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will have a school meal provided by aspens each day. The full choice of meal options are available to the children every day including sandwiches, jacket potatoes, salad and both vegetarian and meat option hot meals and a pasta dish. We want our children to have a daily, healthy meal at lunchtime whilst also encouraging them to try new foods to develop their eating habits.
FREE SCHOOL MEALS
If you are in receipt of certain benefits, your child may be eligible for free school meals. If this is the case, please apply for this benefit, even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, as the school receives extra funding for each child entitled to free school meals, which we can use to further support the quality of the education that your child receives.

If your child is in Years 3 to Year 6 and you are not entitled to free school meals, you can pay for their meals by visiting the Arbor Parent Portal

Sandwiches, fruit and yoghurt are offered daily, so even if your child prefers a packed-style lunch, these options are available every day.
However, if you would prefer your child to have a packed lunch brought in from home, please email the school on email@example.com so that we can update our records accordingly.
