There are many reasons why children benefit from staying for a school lunch.  Our meals are great value for money and a hot, healthy dinner is great is for energy because your child will use up a great deal of energy during a full school day.  Children need to concetrate during lessons, let off steam at play times and recharge their batteries for the afternoon.  

Eating a school meal helps to achieve this and provides the following:
