School meals

Nutritious and delicious. Providing good food for growing brains and bodies.

Our school meals are freshly prepared onsite, every day.

We prepare everything from scratch, including baking our own bread and use organic ingredients where possible.

Please let us know of any allergies or dietary requirements  - an allergen-free or vegan alternative is possible. Please complete dietary requirement form below and submit with medical evidence to the school office. 

Why Vegetarian?

A vegetarian menu gives us the opportunity to source the highest quality, seasonal ingredients within our budget. Vegetarian meals meet everyone's nutritional needs and mean that all members of our diverse school community can share the same meals together. 

Please read our School food policy

About school lunches

Kindergarten chlldren eat school lunch together in their own classrooms.

Children in older classes eat in the dining hall. Each class eats together, so that they can all enjoy a shared meal. Children may have a meal prepared by the school kitchen, or bring a packed lunch.

All school-cooked meals are vegetarian with option to be vegan.

Ordering lunches

Please make sure your child know's whether they're having a hot meal OR jacket potato/soup each day (see menu for details of options).

Lunches should be ordered and paid for each term in advance via Arbor.  Any absences during the term will be credited to you for the following term. 

If school dinners aren't pre-ordered and pre-paid, the kitchen may not be able to provide ad-hoc meals.
