Hot School Meals
Our hot school meals are provided by Local Food Links who have been making delicious and nutritious school lunches since 2006. All their meals are freshly-prepared every day in local kitchen hubs with love and care, using great quality ingredients that are locally sourced wherever possible.
School lunches are free for all children in Key Stage 1 – Reception, Years 1 and 2. This is a Government initiative that saves you £450 over the school year. With 3 main course options every single day, followed by a pudding or piece of fruit, we’re sure that your child will quickly find lots of meals they love.
You can order online at a time that suits you, even if your child is receiving free school meals. You can do this by registering at: http://www.localfoodlinks.org.uk/for-parents/
Before you order your meals, you will need to link your account to your child’s details using an activation code available from the school office.
