We operate a pre-ordering system whereby the children choose what they want for lunch at morning registration.  We would be grateful if parents could discuss the menu options with their child beforehand so the pupil is clear about what they are choosing.


Please note that the universal free school meals programme does not apply to children at the Juniors.
