Healthy Packed Lunch Builder

A useful poster guide (PDF 0.5MB) to help parents and pupils build a delicious, healthy packed lunch.


School Food Standards

Since December 2015 all school meals are required to adhere to the School Food Standards. All of our menus are checked to ensure they meet these government requirements. For more information download the full School Food Standards document (PDF 0.5MB).


Eatwell Guide

The Eatwell Guide (PDF 4MB) shows how much of what we eat overall should come from each food group to achieve a healthy, balanced diet. You don't need to achieve this balance with every meal but try to get the balance right over a day or even a week. Download as a useful tool to help everyone try to eat a little bit better.
