Local Food Links make delicious school meals, delivered fresh from their Dorset kitchens every day. These are organic and freshly made, mainly using local ingredients. They're better value and more filling than lunchboxes, and more convenient for busy parents too. A healthy, tasty lunch means better concentration in the afternoon... and best of all, children LOVE them! Even fussy eaters. These need to be pre-ordered through Local Food Links website.

Local Food Links where recently involved in the TV Programme called Food Rebels, this looked at everything they do and the many projects they are invloved with. Including providing hot lunches to school. As part of this, the camera crew came into our school to film our lunchtime as the last part of the process having documented the souring of ingrediants and preperation of the lunches. The epsiode can be viewed on the following link, Episode 4.
You may choose to provide a packed lunch for your child. Please ensure your child’s lunchbox is clearly named – the box may include a soft drink in a plastic flask or carton. For obvious reasons, no bottles are allowed and no fizzy drinks. Chocolate/crisps are discouraged. We aim to promote a healthy lifestyle in school.
Water is available in all the classrooms.
