Lunch / snacks

Unicorn School is nut-free.


A drink and biscuit or fruit are given out at morning break. Infants break for lunch at 11.55am; Juniors at 12.35pm. Children in homework club may bring an extra snack for after school.


Unicorn has a working kitchen with a dedicated chef where we produce high quality, home cooked food for lunch and break time snacks and have appointed a well-regarded catering firm, Palmer and Howells, to manage our lunch provision.

There will be a main dish, with vegetarian option as well as sides and either a baked potato with filling or pasta option and a dessert or fruit for the children to choose from. All allergies and dietary preferences will be carefully managed and the kitchen is nut and sesame free.

Lunches in the school hall are in separate sittings for Infants and Juniors.
