School Menu

The school dinners that we offer children are fresh, nutritious and all cooked from scratch in our school kitchen. Because we run our own catering service we can ensure that the quality meets the school’s requirements. With the help of Essex County Council we are able to source as much fresh, local and seasonal organic produce as possible. Our fresh fruit and vegetables are supplied by Barleylands Farm Shop, call them on 01268 288886.


The meals that our children are now enjoying are made from the finest quality ingredients. We really are trying hard to produce a school meal service that we can be proud of.  We do sometimes have a special menu day.


Please ensure your child's school lunch account remains in credit.
