Bledington School is lucky enough to have its own kitchen and a wonderful school cook who prepares fresh meals daily on site.
Children enjoy having hot dinners as well as sandwiches and a highlight of the year is when the whole school sits down to a Christmas dinner together.
In the summer months the children are able to eat their lunch outside.
