Parents' Guide | School Dinners
Download our school dinner menu at the bottom of this page. Please note, this menu is subject to change. We will always inform families of any changes in advance wherever possible.
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to free school meals which are provided every day and cooked onsite by our school caterers, Mellors Catering. Children have a hot food choice and salad is available every day. There is always fresh fruit available for dessert. We believe this to be an important and beneficial part of the school day. All children are taught how to use a knife and fork as well as good table manners. This is also a social time when children talk with their peers and staff over lunch. School menus are available from the school website or from the school office upon request. If your child has specific dietary needs then please speak to a member of school staff.
Children in key stage 2 may choose to have a school dinner. If you receive benefits such as income support, please come to the office to check if you are entitled to free school meals. The current cost for a school lunch is £2.00 per day. Dinner money should be paid online or payed at the school office. If you would like to pay for school meals online (Tucasi website – https://www.scopay.com/login.html) and you don’t have your personal log-in, please come to the school office to collect instructions. Please put your child’s dinner money in an envelope clearly marked with the child’s name and class. Cheques to be made payable to Arnbrook Primary School.
Alternatively children in key stage 1 and 2 can opt to bring a packed lunch to school.
Full details of how we manage any pupil's allergies are included in our allergy policy - available at the bottom of this page. If your child has any allergies, please ensure you inform school straight away. Arnbrook Primary School does not guarantee a completely allergen free environment, but we do ask that parents/carers could avoid nuts and products with nuts in them wherever possible. This may include some types of cakes, biscuits, cereal bars and vegetarian products. If your child does have nuts or a nut based product in school, we may ensure they are sitting separately from the child with a nut allergy, in case of any allergic reaction.
