The School is really excited to be working with JPL Catering from 1st September 2021, to provide healthy, nutritious school meals for all our children and staff. The company was set up by Michelin star chef, Junior, who has a passion for food and has worked closely with Jamie Oliver and Nick Clegg to develop a school food plan which has been adopted by all schools and academies in England and Wales. JPL is also supporting the Bite Back 2030 initiative to tackle obesity in children by 2030 . 



JPL Catering believe strongly in nourishing the minds and bodies of young people, and they adhere to the following philosophy:

  • JPL believes that a balanced lunch can be a delicious and fun way for children to learn about nutrition and become empowered about their own diets.
  • JPL supports students in developing their taste buds.





In addition to the printed menu, on the link below, there will be fresh fruit alternatives to the daily dessert, and fresh water to drink if required. All meals are produced on site using local, high quality food resources and take into account allergies and religious preferences. Please make sure that the school office is kept up to date regarding any allergies.
























All meals are charged at £2.20 for those pupils not entitled to free school meals, and are free to all our children in years 1, 2 and Reception, under the Universal Free School Meal provision. Payment must be made through the School Money App, as is currently used for school trips.


If you have any queries relating to school meals please feel free to speak to a member of our Catering Team, via the school office.
