School Meals

View Croft Menu

Children should pre-order their menu choice every 3 weeks- reminders are sent through School Money.  Unless your child is in receipt of Free School Meals or receives the Universal Infant Free meal (Reception up to and inc. Y2) these meals should be paid for when they are ordered.

Our school meals follow a healthy-eating policy they are produced freshly every day in our school kitchen from only:

  • fresh meat and poultry sourced from the region;
  • fruit and vegetables sourced regionally where possible using local suppliers;
  • products free from additives associated with health problems in young children;
  • fats free from hydrogenated oils; with
  • menus that are nutritionally balanced

Can my child be given a special diet?

Our school can provide medical, religious or cultural diets. Please write to the Head Teacher stating the required diet. Medical diets will require a letter from a doctor or dietician.

Our caterers are happy to meet you to discuss our menus to ensure they conform to the particular diet.

Our cooks receive training and advice on a wide range of dietary needs, including nut allergies; egg-free, gluten free and diary-free diets; diabetic; vegetarian and vegan.

Please speak to your school if you have concerns.

Allergen Information is available for all school meals. If you have any concerns or require any information please ring or call into school.

It is very important that we are given up to date information about your child’s food allergies and intolerances.
