Meals

Children stay at school over lunch and have either a hot dinner or bring a packed lunch.

Children who have school dinners are provided with a well balanced meal that is prepared within the government guidelines for nutritional and dietary needs. Whilst ensuring that the meals are healthy, we talk with the children and school council in order to adapt the menu to suit their preferences wherever possible. A choice of fresh orange, milk or water is available for drinks.

The fruit and vegetables are fresh and are cooked on the day of use in our own kitchen. A self-service salad bar is available for children having a school meal. Children can help themselves to cucumber, tomato, sweet corn, coleslaw etc.

Children bringing packed lunches are encouraged to choose a healthy option. Please ensure that packed lunches do not contain sweets, class bottles or thermos flasks. We request that parents ensure that packed lunches are packed in a strong container which is labelled with the child's name.

From September 2016 we will be changing the way dinner money is paid. We have teamed up with ParentPay to develop a new cashless catering system. We are one of the first schools in the country to use this technology. Instead of paying for dinners in cash you are able to pay for them on line.  Details on how to set up an account are available from the schools main office.

Free school meals are available to some children according to family income. It's important to register for entitlement to free school meals, even though your child may have a packed lunch, this is so we can review additional funding (pupil premium) which we can use to help your child.

To find out if your child qualifies for free school meals, and for any help or advice, contact North Lincolnshire Council, or click here to complete on line application.
