School meals are cooked on site by Hampshire Caterers HC3S. The menu offers
children three options daily: a Red Option (meat), Green Option (vegetarian) and a blue option (Jacket Potato).
Children order their meal daily each morning in the classroom. Parents are asked to send dinner money into school in a clearly marked envelope on a Monday morning or preferably pay online. The school office can provide you with the log on details you will require for each child.
Children are more than welcome to bring a packed lunch if they would prefer. We encourage the children to have a balanced healthy lunch, so please consider this when putting together packed lunches. Our school is a nut free school, so please ensure packed lunches do not contain nuts. We also have pupils in school with food allergies, so could you please explain to your child that they must not share their lunch.
Year R, 1 & 2 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals.
For Year 3 to 6 meals cost £2.40 per day.

HC3S, Your Award-Winning School Caterer
Celebrating 30 years of school catering in 2019, our successful ethos is to provide healthy, local, responsible sourced food that children love. Our tasty, freshly cooked, nutritious dishes help your children flourish and reach their potential. As part of a balanced diet, our lunches provide a third of a child’s daily calorie intake, to aid concentration levels and give them energy to focus and to play.
We know that providing award winning meals isn’t enough and so at HC3S we go that step further, by helping schools and the wider community to encourage children, parents, carers to live healthy lifestyles and think sustainably.
That’s why both our ‘Ready Steady Cook’ and healthy eating/lunchbox sessions, the later in collaboration we Public Health England, are fun, engaging and available in your area. Our added value ‘Food to Flourish Classroom’ resources help teachers educate children in an innovative, food related fashion that cuts across the curriculum.
Where opportunity arise, we bring live cooking and food related workshops to the classrooms. Sometimes, through partnerships with our suppliers and other local food organisations, outside of the classroom, creating sensory filled memorable experiences.
Celebrate with us throughout the academic year as we support Nutrition and Hydration Week, British Food Fortnight, and National School Meals Week; key events in the food and drink calendar which are lots of fun.
