School Meals and Healthy Snacks

School meals in our school are provided by NORSE.

Providing over 25,000 primary school meals every day in Norfolk and Suffolk, our food ethos is, and has always been, for high-quality, local ingredients freshly prepared by happy and well-trained catering teams. Our menus are engaging, seasonal and nutritionally balanced to ensure children are fuelled for learning!

Great care is taken in the development of our primary school menus to ensure children have choice and variety with interesting dishes that reflect the changing season. As well as using feedback from children and parents, our Cooks and Account Managers compose our menus with input from Norfolk Healthy Schools, the Children’s Food Trust.

We are lucky enough to have, not only an independent nutritionist available to our menu team, but also registered dietician, Nicole Madden. During term time, Nicole holds a special diet advice clinic between 4.00pm and 5.30pm on Tuesdays. This is an advice line specifically for parents who have questions or concerns regarding their child’s dietary requirements. The contact number is 07718 200884.

Our menus change twice a year so there’s an Autumn/Winter menu which starts in September and a Spring/Summer menu which starts after February half-term.

Break time and lunch time snacks and drinks

All children in KS1 are provided with a free piece of fruit each morning.

In KS2, children have the option to bring in their own fruit snack.  Please do not provide your child with snacks such as crisps, chocolate or sweets. 

All children are strongly encouraged to bring their own water bottle into school each day.  These are freely available to them throughout the day and can be re-filled during the day.
