School meals
 
 

Nutritious and delicious. Providing good food for growing brains and bodies.

We are delighted to say that our new kitchen and dining hall are ready to welcome the students for tasty, freshly-cooked lunches.

Our school meals are freshly prepared onsite, every day.

We prepare everything from scratch, including baking our own bread, using organic ingredients where possible.

We are proud to use local producers and suppliers:

Our fruit and vegetables are supplied by Matter Organics in Easton.

Our organic milk is from Bruton Dairy.

We serve organic shortgrain brown rice and organic wholewheat pasta from Essential Trading here in Fishponds.

Please let us know of any allergies or dietary requirements  - a gluten-free, or dairy-free or vegan alternative is always possible.

Why Vegetarian?

A vegetarian menu gives us the opportunity to source the highest quality, seasonal ingredients within our budget. Vegetarian meals meet everyone's nutritional needs and mean that all members of our diverse school community can share the same meals together. 

About school lunches

Children can bring a packed lunch or have a hot meal each day. Each class eats together, so that they can all enjoy a shared meal.

Please let the office know of any medical or religious dietary requirements, we can provide alternatives in these instances. All meals are meals are vegetarian with option to be vegan.

Ordering lunches

Lunches are ordered and paid for each term in advance.We will email you the new menu for the coming term with a form asking you to select your meal pattern for the coming term and to pay for that up front, by the end of the previous term. Any absences during the term will be credited to you for the following term. 

If school dinners aren't pre-ordered and pre-paid, the kitchen will not be able to provide ad-hoc meals. 

Paying for meals

For Class 2 upwards school meals will cost £2.50 per day (For earlier years school meals are free).

Parents make their childrens' meal choices termly in advance via a form in ParentMail. The best way to pay is through the ParentMail shop online. If you have any difficulties, please contact Satbir, our Finance Officer, to discuss a payment plan.

Any days where the child is not in school and misses a lunch will be credited to the following term.
