School Dining at the Eagle Eatery
The Eagle Eatery
Our school takes great pride in ensuring a family style dining experience for all of our children. Our Christian values are at the heart of all we do to serve our children and it is very important that we continue to ‘break bread’ with one another. We hold highly the tradition of saying grace before sharing a meal together and ensuring that everyone is fed. This means that our children eat as part of the school family and help to serve one another. We believe that it is important that all our children eat a hot, nutritious meal together every day and as such, we do not allow pack lunches unless there is a requirement due to a medical condition or sensory issues.
Family Style dining means that the children serve either the whole meal or parts of the meal to one another from their tables. The lunchtime experience is seen as important as any other part of the school day.
We are delighted to work with Coombs Catering and our in-house chef and catering team. On this page you can find our current three weekly menu. Your children are able to independently choose their meals every morning.
In Reception, Years 1 and Year 2 meals are provided free of charge, funded by the Government.
In KS2 (Years 3 to 6), meals are provided at a cost of £2.50 per meal per day.
If you are in receipt of certain benefits, your child may be eligible to receive free school meals. To find out more information and to apply online, please visit the relevant County Council’s webpage by clicking here.
Food Allergies and medical conditions
If your child has a medically diagnosed condition or allergy which means that they cannot eat certain foods, we will work with you to ensure a positive dining experience.
Nut and Sesame Free School
Due to allergies within the school community, we do not allow anything with nuts or sesame within school.
The Government currently have an initiative to provide all children under 5 with free school milk. We use a company called Cool Milk to manage the milk scheme on our behalf. Once your child has reached the age of five they can continue to receive milk, with the payments made through Cool Milk.
School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme
Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 have a choice of free fruit or vegetables every day as a snack. This is provided under a Government scheme.
Children in Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6) can bring in a piece of raw fruit or vegetable as a snack provided from home.
