Franciscan Primary School operates a healthy eating policy for both school lunches and packed lunches.
Children can choose to have a cooked meal or bring in a packed lunch. School meals are cooked on the premises, offer good value for money and provide a healthy, balanced diet. There is always a choice of menu, including salads and a vegetarian dish, and special diets can be catered for if we are given adequate notice.
Packed lunches should also be nutritionally well balanced. They should not include sweets, fizzy drinks or drinks in cans or glass containers. Whichever choice of meal your child makes, we ask that he or she sticks to that choice for at least half a term.
School meals must be paid for in advance, on a half termly basis. School lunches are currently £2.25 per day (£11.25 per week). All payments for school meals will need to be paid via SIMS Agora Parent Pay (see SIMS Agora page for more information). If you think your child may be entitled to free school meals, please fill in an application form available from the school office.
Our caterers for 2019-20 are Edwards and Ward. Offering a healthy and tasty menu, including a daily vegetarian option.
A new menu will start after the autumn half term from 28th October 2019 and run to 3rd April 2020. To view the full menu, please click on the link below. Thank you.
