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



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!
