Southampton City Catering provides delicious hot meals for the children with a daily choice between a meat and 1 vegetarian option. We are fortunate to have all our meals cooked onsite daily by our Head cook and her team of staff.
The children are able to choose from two different meal choices, the blue (meat) or yellow (vegetarian).
Please the City Catering website for the full menu - https://www.citycateringsouthampton.co.uk
If your child prefers to bring a packed lunch, please ensure that boxes/bags are clearly named. Remember that we are a 'Healthy School'. Glass bottles, fizzy drinks, and sweets are not allowed in school for health and safety reasons. Due to some children having severe allergies we ask that packed lunches do not contain sesame or nuts.
Children can choose to have a hot meal or bring sandwiches on a daily basis.
The children are supervised by a dedicated team of Lunchtime Supervisory Assistants and Teaching Assistants. The team work with the children over the lunch break encouraging play skills, good manners, safety and making new friends.
Universal Free School Meals

Free School Meals
If you are unsure if your child is entitled to Free School Meals, you can check eligibility online at https://www.cloudforedu.org.uk/ofsm/southampton/ or by asking at the school office for a paper form. It is important that you complete this form whether or not your child wishes to have hot school meals. Children entitled to 'Free School Meals' will be entitled to pupil premium. Please see the Pupil premium section for further information.
