Forest View works in partnership with ABM Catering to provide the children with a high quality, varied menu. All children in Reception and KS1 will be eligible for a free school meal every day of the week. Any children who are not eligible for free school meals will be charged £2.20 per day. To see if your child is eligible for free school meals please contact the school office.

In addition to this there is a well stocked fresh salad bar, fresh bread daily and a range of desserts. Desserts will always include fresh yoghurt made on site, fresh fruit, cheese and biscuits as well as other hot and cold options.
