School Meals

Our school meal provision is provided in house.

Our catering team’s aim is to ensure healthy eating for all pupils through the provision of a well balanced school lunch, served in a warm, welcoming dining environment.  A healthy balanced lunch has been demonstrated to improve pupils’ concentration, attention, energy levels and academic performance and as such improve the overall results obtained by pupils.

All school meals meet government nutritional standards however we do have greater freedom over menu choices.  We aim to, in consultation with both parents and pupils, offer what students at Meadowdale would like to eat and will devise menu options based on the needs and wants of our customers, the pupils!

Meals are available at a cost of £2.20 for a main meal and dessert; and £2.36 for a main meal, dessert and glass of juice. The weekly cost is £11.00, although 'extras' are available.

Other fruit and sparkling water drinks are available from 40p to 70p and can be bought as 'extras'.     

We know how important it is to create the good eating habits that can last a lifetime, and teach children about the importance to not only their physical well being but how food can affect their mood, temperament and energy levels.
