School Meals

About the food we serve

We provide a selection of hot and cold lunches, all made in our school kitchen and where possible using fresh ingredients. The lunches meet the Governments school nutritional guidelines, which means that all the children will be provided with the balance of nutrients required to help them concentrate and achieve their full potential, both academically and athletically.

  Fresh Food you can trust

We are committed to sourcing ingredients with assured provenance from local and regional suppliers. We use:

Free Range Eggs, Farm Assured and Red Tractor accredited British Meat and Poultry as well as Marine Stewardship Approved (MSC) certified fish from sustainable fisheries, our Halal meat is HMC and is also UK sourced.

We take great pride in the food we serve at Priory School and our aim is to encourage children to appreciate good food and understand the benefits of eating a balanced tasty lunch. To this end, we provide an after-school cookery club as well as including cooking in the curriculum.

We have a free coffee morning on Thursday after school drop off. Please come along, everyone is welcome (Due to  Covid-19 we will be delaying this).

Special Diets

We can cater for specific dietary needs. Our catering staff are trained to cater for pupils with allergies and religious dietary needs including Halal, Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and Egg Free.

Our kitchen has received 5 stars rating by the Food Hygiene ‘Scores on the Doors’ rating system.

Ordering Lunch

The Government is funding free school lunches for children in reception, year 1 and year 2 in state-funded schools in England. If you have a child in this age group, they will be given a school lunch. In Years 3/4/5/6 your child will be able to choose between a home packed lunch or a school lunch. School lunches are £2.20 this is for a main dish, a pudding, fresh fruit and homemade bread.

If you do decide to bring a home pack lunch please observe our pack lunch policy.
