Our school meals are provided by Harrison Catering and cost £2.20 for all children in the Junior years. We are fortunate to have large school kitchen and our meals are cooked on site, offering a range of options throughout the week. The Governing Body are very excited by out contract with Harrison (which started in October 2018) and spend lots of time ensuring that we chose a company who could provide high quality food using the freshest local produce for our children.
We have an official day when reception parents join us for lunch in September however if anyone else would like to try the food then there will be opportunities during parents evenings.
The termly school dinner menu is sent home to all parents in the school, click here to see the latest menu.
Payments can be by:
- On-line via your parentmail account (this is our preferred method)
- cash or cheque in an labelled envelope via the school office. Cheque should be made payable to Dunton Green Primary School
Under new legislation brought in on 14th December 2014 food providers are obliged to have available information on possible allergens in the food that they are serving the children. If this is something that concerns you and your child then please contact the school office as an appointment will be made with Harrison Catering to discuss alternative options and ensure they are aware of any child's allergies'.
Free School Meals for all Infant Children
The Government's offer all children of Infant age (Reception and Years 1&2) a free school meal everyday.
The school receives money from the Government to support those children who may be eligible for a free school meal (known as the Pupil Premium, further information is available on this website under the 'Learning' toolbar). In order for the school to receive this additional money, to support these children, it is essential that parents who feel they are eligible to claim for free school meals for their children still do so even if the children are of infant age. Without claiming for this the school will not receive the additional Pupil Premium money and the children will miss out on additional funding that they are entitled to.
