Educate Together Academy Trust actively promotes the importance of a healthy, balanced diet for all of our children.

Children are able to have a mixture of school meals and packed lunches. School meals are cooked on site and are currently free for all children in Reception, Year One and Year Two and cost £2.40 for children in Key Stage 2.
