Lunch menu

Hot meals are prepared every day in the school canteen; these comply with the health nutritional standards. Children are given three choices at every mealtime, including salad and fresh fruit. Special dietary needs can be catered for after consultation with a member of staff.          

The cost of a school meal is £2.10 per day, £10.50 per week payable in advance on Monday morning. Payments can be made weekly, monthly, half-termly or termly. Cheques should be made payable to Coundon Primary School.

We ask that parents commit to a full 5 days of meals each week and that children do not swap from hot meals to packed lunches on a weekly basis. If you wish to make changes to your child's current meal arrangements please make sure you inform a member of the office staff and not your child's class teacher.

Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal each day under the Universal Infant FSM scheme.
Parents that are in receipt of benefits may be eligible for Free School Meals (please check at the school office or on the website) If you are entitled to FSM but your child wishes to bring a packed lunch each day we would still encourage you to apply because it entitles the school to valuable Pupil Premium funding which enables us to pass on savings to parents on the cost of school trips and
the purchase of uniforms, alongside enhanced provision to support your children with academic and social aspects of school life.

As an alternative to hot meals, children may bring a packed lunch into school. Coundon Primary is a ‘Healthy Eating School’ so we do ask that parents make healthy choices when packing lunch boxes and do not include chocolate bars, biscuits and sweets.

Packed lunches are eaten in the classrooms. Each class has its own Midday Supervisor to look after and supervise children throughout their lunch break.
