School Meals and Arbor payments

School meals are provided by Independent Catering a local specialist FRESH FOOD caterer offering varied menus using fresh British meat, freshly baked bread, fresh vegetables, fresh salad and fresh fruit every day. All meals are prepared on-site by skilled and fully trained staff. For further information please click this link.


The daily price for a meal including dessert is currently £2.53, paid in advance.


Each day pupils will be asked if they are having a school dinner or a packed lunch (children can decide on the day if they are having a school dinner). Those having a school dinner will be given the daily options (the week's menu is available in the classrooms), and asked which choice they would like. The correct colour wristband is allocated to the children (see below) and then shown at the lunch counter and a corresponding meal is served, however, a little extra is always cooked of each choice just in case! You might like to discuss the options available with your child to help them decide.


  • Main meal (red wristband)
  • Vegetarian (green wristband)
  • Pasta meal (yellow wristband)
  • Filled jacket potato (blue wristband)

Orange wristbands are available for children with allergies or intolerances.


A selection of pudding choices are offered including a hot or cold dessert, cheese and biscuits, yoghurt and sliced fresh fruit.


Meals are paid for using Arbor, please ensure your account is in credit.
