Hot School Meals – Hampshire Caterers Packed Lunch

From September 2014 all children in our school are entitled to a free hot school dinner. 

Our food is prepared by HC3S  Hampshire Caterers.

There are always two options, one of which is vegetarian. During the summer HC3S also offer a picnic lunch as an option.

A copy of the menu is available from the office or can be viewed on the parent notice board. Alternatively you can view the menu via

Parents will be advised of changes to the menu. 

Alternatively children may bring a packed lunch.   We strive to maintain our Healthy School Status and request that parents support this by making healthy choices for lunch boxes. We discourage chocolate bars and fizzy drinks.

We also operate a nut free zone in school as some can children have life threatening allergies.
