Lunchtime is a key part of our school day. All children eat lunch ‘family dining’ style, during which children learn to serve themselves and each other (as opposed to having to queue at a counter to collect their food). The older children support the younger children by taking on roles such as servers in the hall. We all sit down as a school and eat together; adults eat the school lunch with the children to encourage and model good conversations. We serve each other food and help tidy away together. We value this time and see it as a key learning opportunity.
All children from Reception to Year 2 are entitled to school meals, free of charge. We aim to be a very healthy school and see eating as a way to reinforce our values and commitment to a high-quality education. We know that the climb to university is long and hard, so we provide our students with nourishing and healthy meals to keep them going. All dietary needs can be catered for as our chef cooks the meals each morning. Please find a copy of our Family Dinning Menu below.
We have an online facility where you can pay for your school meals via Leeds City Council. You will need to obtain an ID code for your child from the school office, then visit Parent Pay.
If you are the parent, foster parent, network family carer or guardian of children at school and you are on a low income, you could be entitled to Free School Meals. Young people who are still at school but receive Income Support in their own right can also receive Free School Meals. Please click here for more information about Free School Meals.
