We provide healthy and nutritious meals that are freshly prepared on site each day from locally sourced ingredients.
All our menus are a big step towards the proposals in the consulation document 'Appetite for Life', which has been approved by Welsh Government.
School menus and standards can be viewed at http://www.monmouthshire.gov.uk/app/uploads/2013/06/Summer-Menu-2015-Eng...
In addition to paid school meals and free school meals pupils are able to bring in a packed lunch from home. We ask that parents do not pack bottles or cans or provide their child with fizzy drinks, as they can be messy and could pose a health and safety hazard. Parents who would like further advice on what they should include in their child's packed lunch can get advaice from the My School Lunch website.
Pupils can also return home for lunch lunch time starts at 12:30pm amd pupils should return before 1:30pm. Pupils should be collected from the main school reception area.
