Packed Lunches

You may prefer for your child to bring a packed lunch. We teach and encourage children to eat healthily and this is followed up in the dinner hall. We ask that parents and carers support the school by providing healthy packed lunches. We ask that you don’t send in sweets, chocolate, fizzy drinks, glass bottles or cans. Please see the link below to view our packed lunch guidelines:
