New Catering Company
In recent years, our school meals service has been developed and transformed, since we brought the catering service into the school. Sasha (our school cook) has delivered a bespoke menu, providing both the children and staff with fresh and tasty meals daily.
The last year has been more challenging than ever with staffing changes and increased food costs, so we have made an informed decision to move the catering across to our Coombe Academy Trust contract with Independent Catering, please see the video above.
To help Independent plan for January, we would like all families to select the meals for/with their child and respond using the Meal Order Form by Friday 17th December please. If you have any questions, please contact the school office.

School Meal Price
Pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to receive a free school meal each day. You may be entitled to FREE SCHOOL MEALS but not know it. Please see information about Free School Meals below.
The cost to families not eligible for Free School Meals in Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6 is £2.34 a day.
Ordering and Payment for school meals
Please complete the meal order form, as we use the form to register your child's meal choices onto our meals system. Can you also complete the form as clearly as possible, so that your child's choices are inputted correctly. We suggest that you keep a copy of your child's meal choices for your own records.
Free School Meals and Universal School Meal Eligibility
If you have confirmed eligibility for your child to have Free School meals, no payment is required.
Every child in Reception through to Year 2 is entitled to a Universal Infant Free School Meal (UIFSM). Universal Infant Free School Meals provides funding for all government funded schools to offer free school meals.
Parents with children in Years 3 to 6 will have to pay for their child's meals unless their child is eligible for Free School Meals.
If you are not sure whether your child is entitled to Free School meals and you would like to know whether your child is eligible, you can apply by using the link below.
If you have any queries or you would like to discuss any aspects of the school meals order process, please do not hesitate to contact the school office on 0208 546 7388 or email email@example.com.
Packed Lunches & Nut Free School
With our school meal menu we do try to encourage our children to eat vegetables, salads, fruit and to drink lots of water with their meal.
When children bring packed lunches into school from home, we ask if parents could not include sweets, nuts or any food products with traces of nuts, chocolate or any fizzy drinks in their lunch boxes. We suggest a sandwich, reduced salt crisps, yoghurt, a piece of fruit with their filled water bottles or some fruit juice.
Under no circumstances are food products with NUTS or traces of nuts allowed on the school premises.
We have children who are highly allergic to nuts and we do not want to put them at risk.
