School Lunches

Fresh cooked lunches are cooked and served on the school premises by the Caterlink catering team.

Fresh ingredients are used and menus circulated each term. Each day there is a meat dish, a vegetarian option or a jacket potato with a filling. There is also a choice of desserts. Children can help themselves to bread and salad from a salad bar and can choose milk or water to drink. Nursery children eat in a designated space in the Early Years setting, but all children from Reception to Year 6 eat in our dining room in year group sitting.

If parents wish children may bring a packed lunch, please see our school Packed Lunch Policy for guidance. However,we request that children who do so abide by our healthy lunches policy and have a healthy, balanced selection of food. Fast food, sweets, fizzy drinks and cans are not allowed. For ideas on healthy packed lunches click here to see the NHS healthier families, recipes for lunch boxes.

We encourage all of our pupils to drink water throughout the day, which is readily available for them inside school and in the playground. 

School lunches are free for all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 through the Universal Free School Meals scheme. However, if you think you are entitled to Free School Meals, you must apply as the school receives additional funding for each successful application. 

You can apply for Free School Meals by clicking here, it will take you to Camden Council's application form for you to complete.

Benefits of having free school meals eligibility from Camden are:
- Discounts on After School Clubs.
- Cheaper school trips.
- Food vouchers from Camden during the school holidays.
- Access to HAF programmes during school holidays.

You will not get these benefits if your child only gets the Mayor's Free School Meals.
