Our School Meals


We offer school meals that are cooked on the premises by Anji Phipps who is our school cook. She has had been with us for 18 years and previously has had 9 years experience of outside catering. She understands children and is very aware of any allergy or dietary requirements they may have. Our 'Anji' cooked lunches are very popular as are her lunch bags for those who enjoy cold sandwich type meals. When she cooks the bread for the rolls the aroma just wafts arounds the school!

Anji has worked hard with the school to make sure that our children eat healthily and ensure our Healthy School Status

All meals are cooked to strict HC3S specifications.


Meals are free for Years R, 1 & 2 and £2.50 for Years 3 - 6

Please see below for our current menu.


We also offer an additional menu of lunch bags in the summer and jacket potatoes in the winter, please see the additional menus at the bottom of this page.


Special Diets


HC3S can provide special diets for pupils with allergies who want to have a school meal. Special diets are provided for pupils with a medical problem, not just a dislike of certain food. Medical evidence confirming the child’s allergy is required.

The standard primary school menu is nut free, with all products used being confirmed as having been manufactured in a nut free environment.
