School Dinners

Here at Greenvale Infant & Nursery 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 complany 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.

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 menu's can be collected from the school office.

If you have any questions about the meals provided, please speak with your child's class teacher, or visit the school office. 

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.

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.
