School Lunch

As a flagship school for Cornwall’s Healthy Schools’ programme, we are in full control of all the food we provide for our children. Our resident chef Andy develops and creates healthy snacks and fresh fruit for break times together with a nutritious lunchtime menu that all the children enjoy. Menus are published on the school web site every Friday for the following week. At present, meals cost £2.20 per day and free school meals are available for eligible children. We actively source fresh, local produce whenever possible and even grow our own food in the school poly tunnel. Chef Andy is always available if there are any questions or concerns about school meals in general and specific allergen advice.

If your child has an allergy and is allergic to any from the list below, please contact Chef Andy. He will always be able to help as our menu does not always contain these allergens. Please note however that our menu does contain allergens.
