Five Star Food!
Our school kitchen recently underwent a hygiene inspection by West Lancashire Borough Council and were delighted
to achieve the highest possible rating of 5.
Congratulations to Mrs Trafford & Mrs Murrie who cook & serve our children with delicious, healthy,
hygienically prepared food every day.
Our rating is proudly displayed in the kitchen window alongside the daily menu.
Thanks to a Government Initiative, from September 2014 all pupils from Reception up to year 2 will
receive a daily meal free of charge.
Our kitchen prepares four, nutritionally balanced hot options every day. Portions are the right size for
young children and are made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Our cook will happily provide a cold lunch if your child does not wish to take any of the hot options.
Parents of pupils in years 3-6 must pay for meals in advance by cash or cheque at the school office or online.
Please contact Mrs Cartwright to arrange on-line payments.
The current "Fresher Plus" menu is available from the rack outside the school office or
via the Healthy Heroes button below
