School meals are provided by Oxfordshire County Council. We have a kitchen on site and our cook, Kirsty, cooks our meals each day.
The latest school menu is below, and copies are also available from the office. There is a hot meal each day, as well as the option of a hot snack / sandwich instead, as well as salad, dessert and fruit. The three week menu gives an opportunity for lots of variety.
All pupils in Key Stage 1 (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) are entitled to receive a free school meal, through the Universal Infant Free School Meals scheme.
For children in Year 3 upwards, lunch costs £2.30 and needs to be paid in advance either daily, weekly or termly. If you think you may be eligible for a Free School Meal, please let us know.
Children may bring their own packed lunch if they prefer, and all children eat together at lunchtime in the school hall.
By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day (unfortunately the scheme is not able to provide a dairy-free alternative).
“How much does it cost?”
Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.
“Why should I register my child?”
School milk provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.
“How do I register my child?”

When your child is in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, they will receive a piece of fruit or a vegetable at breaktime each day.
The School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme (SFVS) is a government programme that entitles every child in England, aged 4-6 in fully state-funded schools to a piece of fruit or vegetable each school day, this equates to approximately 2.3m children in approximately 16,300 schools.
The scheme was introduced following the NHS Plan, launched in 2000, which included a commitment to implement a national fruit and vegetable scheme by 2004. The SFVS is funded by the Department of Health.
The SFVS is part of the national 5 A DAY programme. Fruit and vegetables are key to a healthy lifestyle and it is recommended that children eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day. Research has indicated that on average children in England only eat around three portions daily, with many eating fewer.
