As participants in the North Yorkshire Healthy Schools Award, we are committed to promoting healthy eating and ensuring that our pupils get the energy and nutrition they need across the whole school day.

We also want to develop a positive culture around food, where pupils enjoy eating and develop an interest in the food they eat. To view our School Food Policy, please click here.

We work in partnership with North Yorkshire County Caterers to provide healthy school lunches for our children. The lunches are prepared and cooked on site by our dedicated lunchtime staff. Each day, there is a choice of menu options for the children to choose from, which currently include a main dish, sandwiches, jacket potatoes, pasta pots, as well as a choice of desserts. Pupils can also bring a packed lunch from home if preferred. Click here to read an introductory letter from North Yorkshire County Caterers explaining their services in more detail.



Free school meals are available to all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils and to children whose parents receive certain benefits. You could save up to £450 a year with free school meals for your child. School meals can also save you time and provide peace of mind that your child is enjoying a healthy, fresh, and nutritious meal at lunchtime. 

For more information and to apply for free school meals online, please click here.

Alternatively, please contact the school office if you have any queries regarding free school meals and we will be more than happy to help.

Pupils in Reception and Key Stage One are provided with a healthy fruit or vegetable snack each morning, free of charge.  In addition, all pupils are allowed to bring a healthy breaktime snack from home if they choose to. This needs to be either fresh fruit or vegetables, or a healthy fruit or vegetable product.
