Key Information  »  School Meals

Children may enjoy a healthy school meal or eat a packed lunch brought from home. Please do not send glass bottles, flasks or cans. We do not have our own kitchen and so the majority the hot food is cooked off site and transported in. Some hot food and all our chilled provision is prepared on-site. Our caterers, Catering Leeds have worked very hard to make the food of the highest quality and many of the facilities have been recently upgraded to enhance the lunchtime experience for the pupils. Many staff choose to eat with the children indicating that it is of a high standard.

Dinner money is collected every Monday for the ensuing week or in advance.  The current daily price is £2.05 for Nursery children and £2.40 for KS2 children.  The easiest way to pay is by popping into the school office.  All money should be brought in a sealed envelope with the child’s name, class and amount enclosed clearly marked. Cheques should be made payable to Calverley Parkside.

Children in KS2 who qualify for free school meals will continue to be provided with a meal without charge.

Universal Free School Meals
All children in Reception/Year1/Year 2 classes are able to eat a school meal without charge under the Universal Free School Meal initiative introduced in September 2014. School budget covers the cost of the meals provided. Caterers must provide a carefully designed menu that conform with the highest nutrition standards.

If you want to swap your child from UFSM to sandwiches please let the school office know a week in advance. If we are not informed, school is still paying for lunches that are not eaten. Thank you.

General Information
Alternatively parents may choose to take their child home for lunch.

Children who remain on the premises are supervised both indoors and out by experienced
lunchtime staff or classroom support staff who work under the supervision of the Headteacher.
