School Meals

MSL_logo-1_tcm44-15304

From September 2014 all infant aged children (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes) receive their midday school meal free of charge – a sandwich option is available.  We use the Derbyshire Catering Service to provide a high standard, nutritionally based and balanced meal as served throughout the majority of primary schools in Derbyshire.

Children can take advantage of school meals or bring their own packed lunch or mix and match between the two. Talk to the staff in the office to find out more.
