As we do not have facilities for preparing school meals on site, our meals are prepared at Old Dalby School Kitchens and transported here. We offer a non choice menu which is currently on a 3 weekly cycle. School meals are nutritionally balanced and GM free. The current menu can be downloaded below, as can appropriate allergen information.
Universal Infant Free School meals are available to all children in Years R, 1 and 2. For all other children (unless eligible for Pupil Premium) a meal costs £2.25. Approximately 50% of our children take a hot school meal at lunchtime.
For further information on school meals please see the School Food website. https://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/education-and-children/schools-colleges-and-academies/school-food
Information on eligibility and an application form for free school meals is available from Leicestershire County Council. https://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/education-and-children/social-care-and-supporting-families/free-school-meals
Alternatively children may bring a healthy packed lunch to school. Please do not send sweets, chocolate or hot foods such as flasks into school. Healthy lunchbox ideas can be found at Change4Life and Livewell.
Children should come to school with a water bottle each day. Other drinks should not be provided.
For further information on school lunches please speak to the school office.
