School Dinners

We are really excited to say that from Monday, 2nd October our school dinners will be provided by Coombs Catering, not Leicestershire Food Services.

The menu will not change until half term, we will send the new one out nearer the time, as well as adding it to the website. Last term, the children were asked about meal ideas so they should be able to spot some of their ideas on their plates very soon!

We are looking forward to lots of themed menus and special prize days as well as good quality food for everyone. The price of a school dinner will return to £2.45 from 2nd October.
