We have a school kitchen which provides hot and cold meals to our pupils everyday. Our catering provider, Eats, regularly update their menu and sometimes offer special lunches to coincide with events such as Easter.
The kitchen provide FREE hot dinners to all children in Foundation and KS1, including a pudding.
Children in KS2 can order a hot dinner, jacket potato or a packed lunch option each day. Lunch costs £2.20 per day and includes a main meal and a pudding. There is also a salad bar they can help themselves to.
All children may choose to bring in their own packed lunch. This must include a healthy option for their lunch boxes i.e. cereal bars, yoghurts and fruit. Whitefriars is part of the ‘Healthy School Programme’ so we aim to promote healthy eating at our school. We do not allow children to have any sweets or chocolate. A biscuit covered in chocolate is allowed.
More information about the meals prepared in our kitchen can be found on the Eats website by clicking on this link.
We do have several pupils with nut allergies which we ask parents to be aware of. We ask that you do not send pots/packets of whole nuts to the school.
