The visitors all enjoyed a two-course meal, with choices ranging from a roast dinner to Spanish meatballs in tomato and basil sauce, and the school’s own ‘Wistow Sausage Roll’.

Desserts included all the old school favourites such as fudge tart and chocolate sauce, fruit crumble and cornflake tart and custard.

Mr Simon Eardley, the headteacher, said: “We always look forward to grandparents joining us for lunch, and it is lovely to see how much the children enjoy having lunch with their special guests.”
