Lunch Menus

Our meals are prepared and cooked in the school kitchen at Maylandsea Primary School and transported here for serving.  Menus are shown on our website and displayed on our notice board outside the school office.

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal every day through Universal Free School Meals Funding.  Any pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 that are entitled to free school meals can also receive a meal (please refer to FAQ section to see if your child/ren are eligible for free school meals).  There is an opportunity for all others to purchase the meals, if they wish, which from 26th February 2024 costs £2.50 per meal.

All school dinners must be ordered and paid for on line via School Money schoolmoney.co.uk.

Water

Please send your child into school each day with a clearly labelled water bottle.  The children are able to refill their water bottles in their classrooms or at lunchtime.  Please fill with water only (not juice or squash) because it is important to maintain hydration during the day and to avoid an over consumption of  additional sugars or additives.
