Our School Lunches

A message from our catering company Caterlink  

The food children eat in school is very important for their education. Not only does a well-balanced diet help with general health but establishing healthy eating habits at a young age can give them knowledge for the future. We understand primary school children and their likes and dislikes so we tailor our menus to encourage maximum uptake.

 

Healthy eating is at the very heart of our approach to food. We wholeheartedly encourage balanced eating patterns within our schools and investment in training and our policy of purchasing seasonal produce enables us to deliver exceptional value.

 

We have implemented our own Fresh Food Policy throughout our business which sets out our expectations and minimum requirements to meet the daily nutritional needs of the students and staff for whom we cater. We are proud to have gained professional recognition for the success of our Fresh Food Policy, including the Soil Association’s Food For Life Served Here at both “Silver” &”Gold” levels and Compassion in World Farming’s “Good Egg” Award.

 

You could say that food fuels the brain. Eating a well balanced diet helps with physical fitness and general good health, both in body and mind. A well balanced diet means getting the right nutrients your body needs to be in tip top condition – protein helps with repair and growth, carbohydrates and healthy fats provide you with energy, water replaces lost fluids and fibre and the right vitamins support healthy body maintenance. By getting into the habit of eating healthily, we can avoid the risk of serious health problems for the future.

How to apply for Free Schools Meals 

As of September 2014, all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals.

 

If you do decide that your child should have school dinners then you will be included on the school dinner register for half a term; if you would like to change your child to home packed lunch then you may do so but only at the start of the new half term period. 

 

If you are on a low income your child may be entitled to free school meals. To find out if this is applicable to you, please contact Pupil Support at Lewisham Council via telephone on: 020 8314 6221 or via email at: pupil.support@lewisham.gov.uk or you can apply at https://schools.lewisham.gov.uk/parentportal/

Payment for school meals

The cost of school dinners for a week is £11.50 and payment should be paid in advance online through Parentpay. Please contact the office straight away if you are having any difficulty making your payments online.

 

It is important that you keep the office up to date of your child’s lunchtime arrangements. If you fail to pay your school dinners on time and a debt is accrued, your child’s school dinners may be withdrawn.
