Our School Meals
Our school meals are very important to us. We believe that nutritious food helps the children grow healthily in mind and body.
We are a ‘Food for Life’ flagship school, and have been awarded the bronze, silver and prestigious gold award. This means that all our school meals are nutritionally balanced, and sustainable. Many of the ingredients that we use are locally sourced and organic. Our local partners include Complete Meats from Axminster, Riverford Dairy and Total Produce for our fruit and vegetables, who have access to over 45 local farms.
Our children learn about where their food comes from, and grow their own vegetables in the kitchen garden. They have regular opportunities to prepare food and cook, as many of our curriculum topics have links to food. In addition to this we also hold the following awards for our school meals:
Devon Life Award
Taste of the West for Local Foods in Schools
EDUCATERING of Excellence
BBC Food & Farming Finalist
Good Egg Award
Free School Meals
Under the Government Universal Infant Free School Meals Scheme, children in Reception and Years 1 and 2 are entitled to a hot meal free of charge. Children in Years 3 - 6 are required to pay for meals unless parents are in receipt of a means tested benefit and have registered for free school meals. A 'meal' is a main meal with vegetables, a dessert and a drink.

How to order
The school uses ParentPay for ordering lunches which you can activate using a unique username and password.
School lunches cost £2.44 per day.
For years 3, 4, 5 and 6, payment will need to be made at the time of booking on ParentPay. For children in Reception, 1 and 2, there will be no payment required as meals are provided free of charge for these years.
Making your selection via ParentPay will provide you with the flexibility to book a term in advance and to make any changes to your menu choices as required.
Pre-ordered lunches will be cancelled if you inform the office of illness etc before 9.30am and your ParentPay balance will be credited.
