The Children and Families Act 2014 places a legal duty on all state-funded schools to offer free school lunches to pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. This means that you don’t need to pay for school lunch until your child reaches Year 3. In the winter, when we finish school early on Fridays, your child will be provided with a packed lunch to take home. We shall, of course, advise you if the law changes.
As from September 2021 we have a new caterer Signature Catering providing hot kosher food to all our pupils. We look forward to all our children enjoying a hot nutritious and tasty lunch. Watch this space for pupils comments about our new lunches.
We have formed a committee consisting of Governors, Staff and Parents and are currently exploring options for a new lunch provider to start in January 2021 to provide hot lunches for all our children. Please watch this space for exciting developments.
Food at school
Children may bring in plain Kosher crackers or rice cakes, fresh fruit and vegetables for snacks, to eat during first break or afternoon play.
On Rosh Chodesh, to make an exciting difference to the children and to recognise it is a special day, we allow the children to bring in Walkers Ready Salted crisps. Please make sure these are on the London Bet Din kashrut list and that any snacks sent in are nut-free.”
