As you may be aware, all children in Reception and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a Universal Infant Free School Meal (UIFSM). We encourage all children to have a school meal as they are nutritionally balanced and we use locally sourced ingredients. Your child will have a choice of the following meals from the Eating Palace menu each day:
Main meal option (Meat or Vegetarian)
Jacket Potato Meal
Picnic Lunch Bag
The cost of a school dinner for Key Stage 2 children will remain at £2.30 per meal. We have made some exciting additions to the Class Café menu which include a Jacket Potato or Soup meal choice every day. Please pay for your child's school dinners online using the Parentpay system .
We have attached a copy of the menu for Terms 1 and 2 which provides detailed information regarding the daily options.
The Picnic Lunch Bag at the Ashton site will contain the following wrap or roll:
Monday - Tuna Salad Wrap
Tuesday - Cheese and Cucumber Roll
Wednesday - Ham and Tomato Roll
Thursday - Cheese and Ham Wrap
Friday - Chicken Salad Roll
The Soup option at the Upton site will be as follows:
Monday - Tomato
Tuesday - Lentil
Wednesday - Leek and Sweet Potato
Thursday - Tomato and Basil
Friday - Vegetable
If your child has a food allergy, intolerance or any special dietary requirements, please speak to our Catering Manager, Nancy Dearnley. She will discuss your child’s dietary needs with you and if necessary design a personalised menu for your child. The school has a strict no nut policy and nuts are not used in any food prepared by our catering team. We ask that children who bring a packed lunch do not have nuts due to the risk to the children at the school with a nut allergy.
Any comments or suggestions regarding our school dinners are welcome.
We look forward to seeing your child at The Eating Palace or the Class Café!
