School meals

Nutritious and delicious. Providing good food for growing brains and bodies.

Our school meals are freshly prepared onsite, every day.

We prepare everything from scratch, including baking our own bread, using organic ingredients where possible.

We are proud to use local producers and suppliers:

Our fruit and vegetables are supplied by Matter Organics in Easton.

Our organic milk is from Bruton Dairy.

We serve organic shortgrain brown rice and organic wholewheat pasta from Essential Trading here in Fishponds.

Please let us know of any allergies or dietary requirements  - an allergen-free or vegan alternative is always possible.

Why Vegetarian?

A vegetarian menu gives us the opportunity to source the highest quality, seasonal ingredients within our budget. Vegetarian meals meet everyone's nutritional needs and mean that all members of our diverse school community can share the same meals together. 

You can contact staff in the school kitchen with any questions or feedback by emailing

About school lunches

Kindergarten chlldren eat school lunch together in their own classrooms.

Children in older classes eat in the dining hall. Each class eats together, so that they can all enjoy a shared meal. Children may have a meal prepared by the school kitchen, or bring a packed lunch.

All school-cooked meals are vegetarian with option to be vegan.

Ordering lunches

Please make sure your child know's whether they're having a hot meal OR salad bar each day (see menu for details of options).

Lunches should be ordered and paid for each term in advance via parentmail.  Any absences during the term will be credited to you for the following term. 

If school dinners aren't pre-ordered and pre-paid, the kitchen may not be able to provide ad-hoc meals. 

Paying for meals

All children in Kindergarten and Class 1 receive free school meals.

For Class 2 upwards school meals cost £2.50 per day.

Meal choices should be booked and paid for termly in advance via ParentMail. If you have any difficulties, please contact Evie, our finance officer (, to discuss a payment plan.

Any days where the child is not in school and misses a lunch will be credited to the following term.

Dietary Requirements, including allergies

All school meals are vegetarian with option to be vegan.
