At Meridian Primary School the children can choose between a hot school dinner or a packed lunch from home. The children from EYFS and KS1 eat their lunch together in the hall at 12 o'clock each day. The older children eat at 12.20pm. The children sit together and choose their own seat.
A new government initiative entitles all children in Reception, Years 1 and 2 to a free school meal. We strongly encourage parents to take up this offer.
Hot school dinner children can look forward to a varied menu and a variety of special lunches throughout the year.
Hot school lunches
We are very proud of our school lunches which are provided by Lunchtime UK.
All meals are cooked from fresh ingredients every day. Lunchtime UK use local suppliers where possible and source 55% of all fruit and vegetables within a radius of 50 miles of the school. They work to the Soil Association’s Food for Life silver accreditation which means that all chicken and pork is’ Freedom Food’, Turkey is free range and organic and beef and lamb are ‘Red Tractor’.
30% of their ingredients are organic and they have a positive attitude to recycling, food miles and wastage.
The company is run by award winning Master Chefs who will continuously train and re-train staff to their high standards. Over the course of the school year there are various theme days and fun days – please look out for these and encourage your child to join in!
Finally, the food is delicious and much enjoyed by children and staff alike.
