Lunch Time is at 12:00pm some pupils will eat their lunch before going out to the playground, whilst others will go to the playground first and eat later. Lunchtime ends at 1:00 pm.
Pupils can choose to have either a hot lunch or a packed lunch. We have a packed lunch policy that is intended to encourage healthy eating (see below). Any type of nut item should also be avoided as there are pupils in school with severe nut allergies.
Dolce are our suppliers of school meals. Dolce is a family business with a genuine interest in providing a good, honest and reliable service. The company was born out of a desire to improve upon the offerings of the private and public sector in respect to the catering service, the cleaning provision and maintenance and caretaking duties. The focus of the company has always been to provide a quality meal for the children using local suppliers, buying quality produce and making homemade style meals which are cooked fresh each day.
