School Meals

Lunchtime is a very important part of the whole school day but it isn't just about the food they eat. Children also learn how to behave in a dining area, how to interact with their friends and try foods they might not have at home.


Derbyshire County Council caterers cook school dinners daily in our school kitchens using fresh, local produce to provide a healthy and delicious range of dishes.

Healthy Snacks

If children wish to have a break time snack, they are required to bring in something from home.

Healthy snacks can include FruitVegetables, Dried fruits, Cereal bars (no nuts), Crackers. Please do not send your child with crisps, chocolate bars or sweets.
