School Meals FAQ
What is included in a school meal?
Every day, you can be assured that a school meal will offer:
• At least two portions of fruit and vegetables
• Dairy food items rich in calcium for strong bones and teeth
• Starchy carbohydrates to provide energy
• A protein source to support the body’s growth and repair.
Can a cold lunch be provided instead of a hot meal?
Absolutely! Our cold lunches are made fresh each day and are designed to be both tasty and nutritious, ensuring that children enjoy a balanced and satisfying meal.
How do I order and pay for school meals?
All children in the UK in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 are entitled to a delicious hot or cold meal for FREE. From Year 3 (KS2), your child may still be eligible for free school meals, simply visit www.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals to check. Schools may have an online facility that allows you to order your children’s meals. If your child is in KS2 and above, then the portal will allow you to order and pay for meals.
What if my child has an allergy or special diet?
Our primary objective is to keep our pupils – your children – safe every day when enjoying their school meals. We take allergies very seriously and, supported by our robust Medical Diet Policy, we’ve taken every step to ensure that as many children as possible living with food allergies and intolerance can eat safely at school with their friends.
