Deanesfield Primary School

Dream, Believe, Achieve... And Make A Difference!

Lunch Menus

A hot lunch provision is offered to all children who attend Deanesfield School, from Nursery up to Year 6, with our weekly menus providing a nutritious selection of food freshly prepared by our catering team each day.


All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to receive these meals free of charge under the government's universal free school meals (USFM) funding. Children in Years 3 - 6 will also receive a free meal if entitled to Pupil Premium. If you do not fall within these categories, please ensure your ParentPay account has been activated with your lunch account credited for any meals taken.


To help encourage their independence, children who do not bring in a packed lunch on any given day will be provided with a school lunch. Parents are encouraged to actively engage in viewing the weekly menus with their child and discuss suitable preferences from the options available. Wherever possible, the school will always endeavour to provide your child with their first choice.


If you choose to send your child to school with a packed lunch, please ensure that your child can open their lunch independently or alternatively wrap food in a way that your child can access it easily without help. To help promote healthy eating, sweets or chocolate bars are not permitted and we also request that parents do not send in any items containing nuts to help ensure the safety of our children with allergies.

Catering Theme Day for Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations (Friday 27th May 2022)


As a part of our celebrations to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year, we are offering all children to join us for lunch (free of charge) on the last day of this half term (Friday 27th May). Our School caterers will be serving a themed menu in place of the usual menu for the day, which will include ‘fancy’ hotdogs / vegetarian hotdogs, ‘soldier’ chips and salad sticks (carrots and cucumber) as their main course, and finishing the meal with a traditional Victoria sponge cake for dessert. All children receiving this free school lunch will also be offered a carton of juice and a hand-held flag to wave as a part of the celebrations on the day.


Please ensure you order your child's meal by no later than 12pm (noon) on Friday 23rd May.

Radish - Our School Caterers
