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 governments 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 ordered.
Parents are provided with the opportunity to order their child’s meals weekly in advance using the surveys sent out by the school office each Monday via Survey Monkey (please check your junk/spam e-mail folders if you have not received this survey before contacting the school office). All orders must be received by no later than the Friday preceding the week by 12pm noon at the latest.
If an order has not been received by this time, parents must provide a packed lunch for their child/children for the following week. When sending children in with a packed lunch, please ensure that your child can open their lunch independently or alternatively wrap food in a way that their 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.
Our weekly menu cycle and colour coded menu for the Autumn Term are as follows:
