School meals are prepared and cooked on site and are available each day at a cost of £2.20. All dinner money must be paid in advance of taking a school meal.
School meals and sandwich meals are supervised by 13 Mid-Day supervisors who have each been specifically employed for the purpose. They are directly responsible to the Headteacher or School Business Manager and look after the children throughout the lunchtime break.
Certain families qualify for Free School Dinners where their household income falls below a certain level. Further advice and information about Free School Dinners can be obtained from the School Office or directly from:

Children who wish to bring a packed lunch may do so provided that:
Our school is committed to children developing a healthy lifestyle and in line with this we were re accredited as a ‘Cumbria Healthy School’.
As part of our Healthy School aims we do not allow children to bring sweets into school, but encourage fruit as a break time snack. Whilst we are not in a position to tell parents what to pack in a child’s lunch, we would encourage you to ensure that their lunch is balanced and healthy. Pupils who have a healthy balanced diet are more likely to perform well in schools.
