A specially designed school meals menu is provided for primary school pupils, with a separate menu for nursery school children, so that the changing needs of your child is met as they develop.

Your child can choose from a variety of freshly cooked meal options that change on a daily basis over the three-week menu cycle, and will also receive a dessert and a drink.

The menus provide a range of traditional favourites, such as a Sunday Roast Dinner and Sticky Toffee Pudding, as well as some less familiar options, such as Sweet Potato Fishcakes, that are just as popular with the children. See 'Related downloads' for the menus.

There is also the option to choose from a selection of lighter bites, such as filled jacket potatoes, homemade soup and sandwich, hot deli sandwiches and wraps, and pasta shapes with sauces.

A great deal of effort is put into making the lunchtime experience in primary and nursery schools as enjoyable as possible.

This includes running a variety of theme days throughout the school year, where a themed menu is served and dining halls are decorated according to the fun theme the school and children select. There are a wide range of themes to choose from, including:

  • International cuisines, such as Italian, French, Indian and Chinese
  • Beach Party
  • Wild West
  • Wizard of Oz
  • Pirates
  • Dinosaurs
  • Leavers' Lunches
