All of our catering is provided by The Collegiate Trading Company who cook healthy and nutritious meals in the school kitchens, which comply with School Food Standards. All meals cost £2.30 per day and can be ordered online through ParentPay. Meals need to be ordered by the Thursday of the previous week to ensure that your child receives a meal that they will eat. Dietary requirements and allergies can generally be catered for although, unfortunately we are unable to offer halal meat so, if this is required, then a vegetarian option should be ordered.
All children who are in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 receive universal free school meals so will not have to pay for their lunch. Children who are eligable for Free School Meals can also receive a free lunch every day. All of these
There are three options for a lunchtime meal, two provided by the school and one provided from home.
Options Provided by the School
The menu for hot and cold meals prepared in school is rotated every three weeks. The current menus are below. Parents may also take advantage of this service when their child requires a packed lunch for an educational visit.

The kitchen also runs themed lunch days, which can be ordered using ParentPay in the normal way.
Packed Lunch from home
Your child may bring a packed lunch from home into school. Please do not include sweets, chocolate bars or fizzy drinks in packed lunches and there are no cooling facilities for the packed lunches so please include a ‘freezer pack’ in the lunchbox if necessary. Children are not allowed to swap things from their lunch boxes or give each other food.
West Sussex is a ‘nut free authority’. Please do not include nuts (including peanut butter), as these are extremely dangerous for some children and members of staff.
Lunchtime supervisors oversee pupils eating lunch and will report any concerns to the class teacher e.g. children who do not seem to eat enough or do not appear to have a balanced diet. These concerns will then be reported to parents or carers.
