We will, as our pupils are growing and learning with us, care for, support and safeguard them whilst striving to encourage them to be responsible citizens and do the same for each other and their wider community.
We will strive to ignite our pupils’ desire and enthusiasm to learn without limits.
We will aim to encourage our pupils and school community to develop academically and socially which will develop their desire to explore the wider world, skilled and equipped to find out even more.
The school operates its own 'in-house' catering operation to provide all the food and beverages provided throughout the day.
All school menus are developed using The School Food Standards. This is important to ensure that by offering the children a wide range and variety of foods, they receive the correct amount of energy and nutrition across the whole school day.
Our catering team continually make a conscious effort to reduce our impact upon the environment by:
Providing locally sourced fresh ingredients and organic dairy produce whenever possible.
Being aware of sustainability and only source fish that is caught and regulated by the Marine Steward Council (MSC).
Reducing the amount of plastic packaging and consumables used.
Reducing the ‘food miles’ and the ‘carbon footprint’ we source and use seasonal ingredients and use eco friendly cleaning materials.
The catering team are encouraged to engage directly with the pupils by:
Regularly attending the School Council meetings in relation to menu planning and development. This enables us to encourage the children to try new and exciting meals and also for us to deliver the most healthy version of what the children want.
The school enjoys the freedom and flexibility to create special menus in relation to cultural celebrations and whole school events.

Special Dietary Requirements
Cultural and religious diets
Many people follow diets related to their culture or religious beliefs and the school will make every effort to provide meals for all children. The school needs to have a robust procedure in place for both parents to inform the school of a special diet and for identifying children to ensure that every child receives the correct meal particularly as many of these children are very young and eating school meals for the first time.
All medical dietary requirements (allergies and food tolerances) requested by parents have to be supported by a medical report. An individual care plan will then be created which will document how to recognise symptoms and deal with adverse reactions and actions to be taken in an emergency.
Please complete the Special Dietary Requirements form to inform school of your child's special dietary needs.
