School Meals

Havering Catering Services provide a hot, varied menu using local sourced ingredients in school.  The three week menu offers the children to try new foods from around the world, such as chicken tikka and enchiladas.  In addition to the standard menu, there are also regular special menu day, which reflect on celebrations or events, such as St George's Day and Christmas Dinner. 

Children may also bring a packed lunch to eat in school.  Parents are asked to provide a nutritionally balanced meal, for example a sandwich, yoghurt, fruit and drink.  Please do not include chocolate, sweets or crisps.

There is no cost for Infant children, but school meals for Junior aged pupils currently cost £2.20. Meals are to be paid for via your sQuid account. Click here for a link to make payment.


Free School Meals

Free school meals are provided for children whose families are in receipt of benefits such as Income Support or Income-based Job Seeker's Allowance.  The process for applying for Free school meals has now been simplified. There is no longer a requirement to complete an application form or attend a Council building with proof of eligibility. Parents/carers can now apply over the telephone and their eligibility will be checked immediately using a central Government database (subject to the parents/carers giving their permission). 

If you are eligible and wish to apply please contact Sally Delaney on 01708 433929 or apply here.  By applying it does not mean that your child has to take a school dinner.
