School Lunch Provision

We are aware that eating a hot meal in the middle of the day improves energy levels and concentration. It also enables children the opportunity to widen their taste buds and try new foods. We are very lucky to have our own kitchen here at Deanesfield and our Nursery children are provided with the opportunity of accessing the variety of food options that our caterers have on offer. For the price of £2.15 per day we can guarantee that your child will be offered a hot meat or vegetarian meal or a cold buffet service (including sandwiches, salads etc), with a range of deserts to choose from  every day. 


As we are a cashless school, all payments will need to be made via ParentPay where you will need to credit your child’s lunch account to ensure they are provided with a school meal. Please note that if your child is entitled to Pupil Premium, there will be no charge and your child will be provided a meal. If you need further information about your ParentPay account, please contact the School Office.


Parents accessing the 30 hour Nursery provision have the option to order school meals for their child. Each week, a survey is sent out via Survey Monkey giving parents the opportunity to select the daily meal choice for their child for the following week. The survey must be completed and submitted by no later than each Friday (12pm noon) each week to ensure that the child receives the selected meal for each given day. If an order is not received, parents will need to ensure that a packed lunch is provided.


If you have any further questions, then please speak to your child’s key worker.
