School Meals

School meals are provided in partnership with Warrington School Meals Service. Information on their menus and services can be found here. Further information is also available to download.

Since September 2014 all children in YR and KS1 are entitled to a free school meal. Parents and carers may opt out of receiving a free school meal and send a packed lunch with their child.

For KS2 children purchasing a school meal, payment can be weekly (by cheque/cash), daily (by cash) or by direct debit. The current price of a school dinner is £2.20 per day. If you feel that your child(ren) may be eligible for free school meals, please inform the school office.

Parents may also take their child home for lunch, but this means that children miss out on social time with their peers and we do not encourage this. Currently, every child in school stays on site for lunch.

The new Meals menu is available below.

 

 

School Meal Standards

As part of the School Food Plan, a new set of standards for all food served in schools was launched by the Department for Education. They become mandatory in all maintained schools, and new academies and free schools from January 2015. 

Quality of meals

As part of the school lunch a pupil will receive a two course meal with a drink.  This will include a protein item accompanied with potatoes, rice or pasta and fresh vegetables, a dessert and a drink.

All food and drinks served in Warrington schools meet the government's standards for school food. Food is prepared on site using fresh ingredients. We don't transport food from one school to another (unless an emergency situation arises).

Special dietary needs

Vegetarian, multi-cultural and special dietary items are included in our menu plans. 

Any specific concerns or requests can be dealt with by contacting the school meals catering service.
