School Meals

Our school kitchen is run by Shire Services who offer a variety of meals with a three week menu, they also offer special themed menus throughout the year. We have maintained a 5 star hygiene rating for many years with the last inspection being December 2017. 
The two course hot meal with a choice of main and dessert currently costs £2.35 or £1.70 if you child attends Gobowen All Rounders Nursery. There is always water available and fruit juice or milk can be purchased. 

From September 2014 all children in EYFS/KS1 have been eligible for a free school dinner (UIFSM – Universal Infant Free School Meal). We do ask parents who would be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) to complete a form so your child, and the school benefit from the additional pupil premium funding, even if they are entitled to the UIFSM. Please see the office staff for a form or if you have any questions.

We adhere to the new School Food standards that came into force in January 2015. Please see the document below for further information.

Packed Lunches

As an alternative to school meals, children are able to bring in packed lunches which they can eat in our school hall alongside those having cooked meals. We ask parents to consider health and nutrition in the preparation of the packed lunches.



All children in KS1 are provided with a piece of fruit at break time. Children in KS2 may bring in a piece of natural (not processed) fruit for break time, a yoghurt or a plain breakfast biscuit. Children are not allowed any other types of biscuit or breakfast bars.



If your child has an allergy to certain foods please follow this link to the allergen matrix found on the Shropshire council website. Also please contact our school catering staff to discuss your child's individual needs.


After School

School finishes at 3.00pm for KS1 which allows parents to be able to pick up their younger children before the older children in KS2 finish at 3:05pm.

School the runs extended hours until 6:00pm for clubs and child care.
