Together we nurture the genius in everyone
Our kitchen is currently providing cold lunches only, with a choice of meat or vegetarian options. Please see the Autumn 2020 file below to find out the daily menu (subject to change).
Our current food providers are ISS
Pupils in Reception, Y1 & Y2 will receive meals you have ordered from the website free of charge. ISS will charge parents for every Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 meal ordered, unless you fulfil the Free School Meal criteria, as the Government does not fund meals for children in Year 3 or above. Information about Free School Meals can be found on the Kingston.gov website.
Please order for the whole term to reduce the risk of missing the deadline.
NEW RECEPTION CHILDREN
We would like to remind you that your Reception child is entitled to Universal Free School Meals which are free of charge but you MUST have registered and opened your account (takes around a week) and also pre-ordered meals online with ISS/Cypad at least one day in advance. Please see the attachment at the bottom of the page which explains how to set up your account.
ISS/Cypad (a private company that provides school meals and is not part of the school) can only cook meals that have been ordered by parents/carers.
The school office cannot order or provide meals for your children.

Please ensure that you either order a hot meal from ISS every day or provide your child with a packed lunch. If neither is provided you will receive a text reminder from the school office and you will be expected to provide a named packed lunch by 11am.
If your child requires a special diet due to medical reasons (due to food allergy, food intolerance, and or other medical conditions, eg coeliac disease), please download the forms Special Diet Referral Part A & Part B forms below and forward Part A with a copy of the medical evidence to the Nutrition team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please return Part B to the school office.
The Special Diet menu can take to 3 weeks to set up, so please complete the Temporary Meal form if you would like your child to have school lunches in the meantime.
If you do not require school meals, please make sure your children bring their named packed lunches to school in the morning. Our school has a nut-free policy. Packed lunches must NOT contain any nuts or nut products (for example: peanut butter, nutella, pesto), sweets, chocolate, fizzy drinks, cans or glass bottles. We are a 'water only' school so only water should be given for lunches.
Packed lunches should be healthy - NHS have information and ideas on healthy packed lunches for school children at:
