School Meals

We are very proud of our school kitchen and the meals that we provide to our children.  We use local fresh produce were possible and promote health eating.  Our healthy and delicious school meals are made on site every day. Children are served hot dinners by our cooks using service counters.  This encourages all children to try new foods!


We are very flexible on school meals, allowing children to choose the dinners they wish to have from the East Riding of Yorkshire Council school meals rolling menu, on a termly basis. From April 2024 dinners cost £2.70 per day (£13.50 for the week).  We are a  parent pay cashless school. 


A reminder to parents of children in Year 3, their children now do not qualify for free dinners under the Universal Free School Meals Policy.
