Lunches for children who are in school during lock down
Please note that the food provided in school, if you have chosen school meals for the week, will not be as shown in the menus below. Due to small numbers in school and delivery schedules, we are unable to give menus of what the children will be having as a hot meal. Thank you for your understanding.
