Food

We understand the importance of good, healthy food to your child’s well-being and regard mealtimes as an integral part of their education.

Our dedicated catering team, led by Sue McIntosh, aims to provide a range of tasty, nutritious meals offering a huge variety of choice and opportunities to try new flavours and combinations. All the food is cooked in-house by our own team, using local and organic produce where possible.

Pupils are encouraged to make their own choices and the children from Year 1 onwards are able to serve themselves from the various options on offer. There is always a range of meals to accommodate individual tastes. In addition to the main meal options, there are baked potatoes with a topping or pasta with a sauce and an extensive salad bar. The staff are also more than happy to cater for any special dietary requirements by arrangement with parents.

Our menus have all been approved by a nutritionist to ensure healthy combinations. The children can clearly see the various food groups on offer in order to make their choices. There is always a ‘world’ option on Tuesday where a range of new and exciting flavours can be sampled; there are traditional options on Thursday as well as roasts on Wednesday. Fish Friday is a popular option and main meals are always complemented by fresh vegetables, salads and a hot or cold dessert.

Pupils have access to water throughout the day and squash is available at morning break, lunch and after school (prior to clubs starting), when snacks including fresh fruit are also served. Use the links below to see our current menus.
