School Meals

Here at Greenvale Primary School from September 2018 we offer children a range of freshly cooked, hot midday meals that are provided by Chartwells catering and cooked here on site.  The Governing Body and staff at Greenvale have spent time ensuring that Chartwells are a company who can provide high quality food using the freshest local produce for our children.


Under new legislation brought in on 14th December 2014, food providers are obliged to have available information on possible allergens in the food that is being served.  If this is something that concerns you or your child, please contact the school office who will provide this information to you.  If there is anything that you would like added to your child's records relating to food allergens, please let the school office know who will pass this information through to the kitchen staff. 

Due to current allergens in school, we are not able to allow the following food in school:

Nuts. Strawberries (and strawberry flavoured items) and Eggs


Free School Meals

All school meals provided by us here at Greenvale are provided FREE OF CHARGE.  The Government currently offer all children that are infant school aged (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) a free school meal daily. 

School Dinners

Chartwells provide us with a wide range of school dinner options that change from week to week, and from term to term.  This is reviewed regularly by the school and menus can be collected from the school office.

Please see the latest menu at the bottom of the page.

Packed Lunches

We also offer children the option of bringing in a packed lunch from home.  Children who would rather bring in a packed lunch will eat their dinner in the school hall at the same time as their classmates who have chosen to have a school dinner.

We ask that parents are mindful of the following guidelines when preparing a healthy packed lunch for their child:

  • Sandwich, wrap, bagel, pasta and crackers
  • Fruit, vegetables and salad
  • Crisps
  • Biscuit / Snack bar
  • Yoghurt
  • Non carbonated drink, i.e water, juice

We do not allow children to bring in sweets, fizzy drinks and chocolate, nuts and eggs.

If you have any questions or would like some advice on what to put in your child's packed lunch, please speak with your child's class teacher.

Our packed lunch guide is available as a pdf further down the page.

Our School Council met to discuss what their friends might like to put into their lunchboxes - you can find their suggestions here.
