School Meals


The school dinner menu runs on a 3-week rotation. You child can have a normal school dinner every day or our best of both menu.

Allergen information is available from Mrs Appleton in the school kitchen.

Mrs Appleton and her team work very hard in the kitchen to provide healthy meals for the children everyday! She also works with the children during lessons and enters competitions with the children. We like to promote good table manners and so every Monday the children who the kitchen staff think have the best manners have the honour of eating their lunch at the kings and queens table.

Our school council regularly meet to discuss the menu. Throughout the year there are special evenings and breakfasts that parents and children can attend. These include Burkina Faso breakfasts and Tudor, Viking or Egyptian banquets.

The other kitchen staff who help prepare and serve meals are: Mrs Harrison, Mr Appleton and Mrs Hough. Turton & Edgworth C.E. / Methodist Primary School won the LACA award in 2014 for the Best Self Managed Kitchen in the UK.
