School Meals

School Dinners

Broomfield operates a three choice system, a meat option, a vegetarian option and a sandwich option, all meals are freshly cooked on site each day and are priced at £2.25 per day.

Free School Meals

Year 2 and below

If your child is in Foundation, Year 1 or Year 2 they can get free school meals as part of the national Universal Free Infant School Meals Scheme

Year 3 and above

We encourage ALL parents of children on low income/benefits to apply for Free School Meal Status – this helps the school to access additional funding from the Government.  It is different to Universal Infant Free School Meals.  It entitles the school to claim additional funds to support children of low income families as well as providing free school meals.  If you think you may be eligible, please enquire at the school office or follow the link below for further information.

Specific Dietary Requirements

If your child has a recognised food allergy for which they are seen by a specialist and they require a specific menu to be designed by the dietitian at School Food Support Services then please download and complete the form below and return it to their head office. Pupils will not be able to start school dinners until the special menu is in place. Please ensure the school office is also informed of any dietary requirements/allergies and subsequent changes that take place.

Sandwiches

Some children bring a packed lunch from home. In order to promote eating healthily and to safeguard children with allergies, the following are NOT allowed in children’s lunchboxes:

  • chocolate
  • fizzy drinks
  • peanut butter sandwiches or any snack containing nuts

Drinks

Water is available for all children at lunchtimes and children are encouraged to bring a bottle containing water only, for refreshment during the school day.
