School Lunches

Our children enjoy a freshly-prepared, nutritious meal, which is healthy and balanced, to prepare them for an afternoon of learning. We also take the opportunity to develop good table manners, skills in using cutlery and recognise that lunchtime is a time to relax and develop social skills.

New menus are displayed below and instructions on how to book a meal on Arbor. All meals whether they are paid or free must be booked via Arbor. Please note the sandwich option is available for years 3,4,5 & 6 children only.

If your child has an allergy and you would like them to have a school meal please complete the form below and email it to the school office. They will forward it to our caters ABM, who will contact you to discuss a suitable menu. Please note that medical evidence of the allergy is required for their records.

If you need any help  please contact the school office - or 0208 397 3864

Ordering a meal for your child(ren)

You do not need to order a meal for your child on a daily basis. The Class teacher will take a meal register each morning and those children who DO NOT have a packed lunch will be ordered a school meal. Children can select which items they would like at the kitchen servery.

If you pay for your school meals you will need to log on to the Arbor app or website and make a payment into your account. Each time your child has a meal your balance will reduce by the cost of a meal £2.40. Please ensure you have sufficient funds in your account so that you do not create a debt.

If you need any help with using Arbor please contact the school office who are happy to help you.

Free for Reception and KS1

All children in Reception and Key Stage 1 can enjoy a freshly cooked lunch with their friends for no cost to you. It’s a perfect opportunity for children to try new tastes or just stick with firm favourites.

For children in Y3-6, the price of a meal is £2.30 which includes a main meal and dessert. The KS2 children can choose from the hot meals or the new cold deli section.
