School Lunches

Lunch is cooked on the premises and we provide a varied menu.

Dinner money should be sent on the first day of the week in an envelope bearing the child’s name and class. Parents can, if they wish pay half-termly. Payment for school meals is strictly in advance. If your child is absent, a ‘credit’ will be carried forward. Special dietary requirements are accommodated. A copy of our menu is available below to help you with meal planning :

If children wish to bring a packed lunch we ask parents to support the school’s policy on healthy eating as we have achieved the National Healthy Schools Award. It is our policy not to allow children to bring sweets to school but to encourage them to choose a healthier alternative, e.g. fruit, nuts, cheese etc.

Free School Meals

School dinners are £2.10 per day for children in Nursery and Years 3,4,5 and 6. If you think you may be eligible for Free School Meals please REGISTER. Children from families in receipt of Income Support are eligible for free school meals. Application forms and further information are available from the Education Welfare Benefits Team (Tel: 0161.474.3878) or any of the Authority’s Information Offices. This does not mean you have to take up a hot meal option every day but it does mean the school receives additional funding which we only receive if families have registered.


A daily portion of fruit is provided for all children from Nursery through to Yr 2


We are registered for the Cool Milk scheme in school. All under 5’s and those on Free School Meals are entitled to free milk in school. All our nursery children are offered milk on a daily basis. However, older children in school need to register with Cool Milk at


To promote healthy lifestyles all children are encouraged to drink water through the day. School provides individual water bottles for all children, and they learn about the benefits of water consumption to aid concentration and learning.
