We are delighted to be working with Nourish to provide hot meals for our children. To find out more about Nourish please watch this video. Their menus are based on fresh foods that use less fat, sugar and salt. A choice of main course is offered each day, one of which is always a vegetarian dish, plus freshly prepared salads followed by fresh fruit pots, yoghurt, homemade puddings, cakes and biscuits.
Children who are having a hot lunch choose their option at the counter – the experience at other schools shows that children are much more satisfied with their meal and that there is much less waste. This is certainly reflected in the jump in the numbers having a hot meal since Nourish came on board in September 2021.
At the Infants, where every Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 child is entitled to a free meal as part of the government’s Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) Scheme, all those children who do not bring in a packed lunch will be able to eat a hot lunch.
At the Juniors, parents pay for meals using ParentMail – there will be no requirement to take a meal every day, you can pick and choose when and how often. Please see the current menu below.
