Orchard Primary School

Be the best that you can be!

School Meals

A hot meal is cooked on site which may be purchased via the school.

The children are offered a variety of different meals each day, including a vegetarian option.

School meals are paid for online via your Parent Pay account.
Please let the school office know if your child wants to change from packed lunches to school meals or visa versa.

Packed Lunches

If children are bringing in a packed lunch, we do encourage a healthy option. Fruit and vegetables are promoted  in school as we are a healthy school and will encourage our children to expand their diets wherever possible. Children are also asked not to bring in food containing nuts as we do have children who have severe allergies and may be affected by them. Unfortunately, this also includes chocolate spread as almost all contain nuts.

Free School Meals

Please contact the school office if you think your child may qualify.  The government provides additional funding to schools for each child entitled to free school meals, regardless of whether or not the free meal is eaten.  Remember all children from Reception class - Year 6 are entitled to free school dinners this year. Please don’t waste it – claim it!
