School Lunches

School Lunches

A nutritionally balanced two-course hot lunch is available daily in school, served in the hall.  For children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 this is free under the government's Universal Infant Free School Meals scheme.  For pupils in years 3 to 6 this is currently also free, until at least July 2025, funded by the London Mayorality.  To sign your child up for school lunches please e-mail the school office

The menu is on a three-week rotating cycle, and it changes twice a year, at Easter and at October half-term.  Please click on the link below to see the current menu.

If your child needs a special diet for medical reasons, the caterers are able to provide a bespoke menu.  Please contact the school office for the necessary forms.  Please note that evidence from a medical practitioner is required before a bespoke diet can be prepared.

Packed Lunch Guidelines

You are of course welcome to send your child with a packed lunch if you prefer.  We do ask, though, that you follow our healthy eating guidelines below, and that you take particular care to avoid anything that might cause allergic reactions in other children - see below.

Healthy packed lunches can include:

  • Fruit and vegetables.
  • Meat, fish or other source of non-dairy protein (e.g. lentils, kidney beans, chickpeas, and falafel).
  • A starchy food such as any type of bread, pasta, rice, couscous, noodles, potatoes
  • or other type of cereals.
  • Dairy food such as cheese, eggs, yoghurt or fromage frais.
  • Plain popcorn, breadsticks or rice cakes.
  • A small cake or biscuit is allowed.
  • Fruit smoothies as long as they are in a tube or pouch that does not resemble a juice carton.

Packed lunches should not include:

  • Nuts/peanut butter. Due to some children having nut allergies, we have a strict no nuts policy (this includes products containing nuts such as pesto and Nutella).  Hummus contains tahini, a sesame seed paste, which some children with nut allergies are sensitive to, so hummus should not be bought into school.
  • Confectionery such as chocolate bars and sweets.
  • Fizzy drinks, squash or fruit juices (fresh drinking water is available for all children to have with their lunch in the lunch hall).
  • Crisps.
