School meals

Our school meals service provides a good range of healthy meal choices in order to fulfil some of the daily nutritional requirements of primary school children. Meals meet minimum requirements for protein, zinc, iron and vitamins and don't exceed maximum recommended levels of salt, sugar and fat.

The school meals service serves up some 3,000 meals a day, or well over half a million a year, to primary school pupils.

Menus are on a 4 week cycle (see below) and are completely changed twice a year, in the autumn and spring, to ensure pupils enjoy a variety of foods.

The school meals service welcomes feedback on its meals, new ideas and recipes. For more information on school meals please visit the wiki, telephone +44 1624 686278 or email the school meals office 

Children from families on one or more of the following benefits may be entitled to free school meals when attending schools maintained by the Department of Education and Children:

  • Income based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Employed Person’s Allowance
  • Income Support

You can apply online for free school meals.
