Children can choose each day whether to have school meals or packed lunch. Chartwells provide our meals on a daily basis and cost £2.05 per day. All the meals are nutritionally balanced following strict Government guidelines and consist of a main course, vegetarian or salad option, a starchy food such as potatoes or rice, a portion of bread and a dessert or fresh fruit. All the meals are produced from fresh ingredients each day including freshly baked bread. All meals contain at least 2 portions of the recommended 5 a day fruit and vegetable target.

Allergies & intolerances
Chartwells will accommodate children with allergies or intolerances. Remember you must complete a special dietary form for Chartwells; they will not accept the old Eden form. Please come into the office and speak to Mrs Herberson who can liaise with our cook.
All of Chartwell's Halal meals are produced in a dedicated central production unit. Again, you can speak to Mrs Herberson in the office for more information.
Chartwells provide a Salad Bar option for the children. Children can choose one protein item - ham, eggs or cheese; a selection of dry salads, tomatoes, lettuce, peppers; rice salads or coleslaw to have with a wrap, bread roll or half jacket potato ... and a dessert, all for £2.05! This is a popular option and if your child would like to try it they'll need to let us know during the usual morning registration, eg School Dinner, Packed Lunch, Salad Bar.
School dinners must be paid for in advance by using our EZPay system or sending in cash or cheques (made payable to "Schools General") in a named envelope on a Monday morning.
Healthy eating could hold the key to a long and healthy life so we have a link below to an established website called "Nutritionist Resource" which provides easy access to nutritional advice from professionals. They offer information about the areas in which nutrition might help and articles written by qualified nutritionists.
