Lunch Menus and Allergens

School meals are carefully designed to provide a balanced and healthy diet.


School meals are served in the School Hall, and are cooked on site. Menus follow a three week cycle and are carefully designed to provide a balanced and healthy diet. Children are served with vegetables as part of their meal each day, and there is always a variety of salad and fresh fruit available.


Cost of School Meals

The current price for school meals is £2.20 per day (Year 3 to Year 6)

The current price for school meals is £2.10 per day (Nursery)


All dinner money must be paid in advance via Arbor. If you have any problems with this, please contact the school office.


Packed Lunch

If your child brings packed lunch, please ensure it is in a clearly marked container. No glass bottles, nuts, fizzy drinks or sweets please!

Please remember that we are a 'Nut Free School' so NO NUTS please.


School Milk

School milk is available free of charge to Nursery children.


Water Bottles

It is school policy to encourage pupils to drink plenty of water. Pupils may bring in their own water bottles to use in school.


Free School Meals

If you are on income support or receive certain other benefits, your child is entitled to a free school lunch.  It could be worth around £360 a year to you and your child. Please click below to find out more information.

Universal Free School Meals

In September 2014 the government announced that all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 would be entitled to receive a school meal at no cost to the parent/carer.


Lunch Bands 

We operate a lunch band system in school. Children will decide on their meal after the morning register and choose either a red, green, blue or yellow meal option.  If your child will be late in due to an appointment then your child may choose their meal a day beforehand. Meal choices and allergens are shown below which will allow you to sit with your child and visually see the options they may want to choose each day.  If your child has any special dietary requirements or for religious reasons does not eat certain foods, please ensure you talk to your child about their daily meal choices and advise them on their selection.  Our school staff will not question children about their choice of coloured band so children will always be given the meal they have chosen.


Allergen Information
In accordance with allergens legislation introduced on 13th December 2014 the kitchen staff at Kingston Park Primary School hold all the relevant information on the 14 listed allergens that need to be identified as ingredients in a dish.
This information is available on request.

Parental Responsibility
Please ensure the school is notified if your child has any allergies that we should be aware of
