Our catering service is run entirely in-house. A copy of our lunch menu can be found below.
The Mayor of London has expanded the provision of free school meals to all pupils in state funded primary schools. This means that all pupils from Reception to Year 6 will receive a free meal for the academic year 2023/2024.
We anticipate an increase in the number of pupils taking a school meal at the Broadway Site and we have adjusted our lunchtime routines and catering accordingly to ensure all pupils continue to have a positive lunchtime experience. New changes at the Broadway Site include:
An increased number of food service points
Self service for our daily offer of fresh salad and bread
Updated staff rota with familiar adults to support pupils in their new routines
All classes give thanks to God for the food they eat by saying Grace before they enter the dining hall. They give thanks to the catering staff by:
Waiting patiently for their meal
Using “please” when requesting their meal
Saying “thank you” when their meal is served
Keeping a tidy area around their plate
Communicating quietly and politely with others sitting at their table
The school council gathers views about school lunches each year and offers suggestions for improvements to our catering team, which are made accordingly.
Menus and Suppliers
Our menus meet and exceed the standards laid down by the School Food Trust. We use seasonal vegetables, fresh food, and fair-trade products where possible and ensure there are always at least two options – including a vegetarian option. The large majority of pupils and staff enjoy a school lunch together every day and dining is seen as an important part of our community.
Our lunch Menu from September 2023 can be found below:
A school meal (for Nursery pupils only) is £3 per day.
School lunches must be paid in advance via ParentPay. To avoid parents accumulating a debt with the school we do not allow lunch debt to build to more than £20 and families with a debt of more than £20 will be asked to provide a packed lunch for their child until the debt is cleared.
We cater for pupils with allergies. If you have any additional requests, please get in touch with our school chef via the office – the catering team is always willing and eager to help adapt menus to suit individual needs.
If you are providing a packed lunch for your child please remember that we endeavour to be a nut free school and parents should be mindful of other allergies that children may have in their child’s class. We ask that parents pack a healthy lunch for their child which does not include nuts, sweets or chocolate bars. If you are struggling for ideas for packing your lunch the NHS Change4life website has some helpful ideas.
