The Diner would like to introduce our packed lunch range.
Packed lunches to Greenvale Primary is a new service and has proved very popular amongst our other primaries. We aim to take the hassle away from having to prepare meals the night before or having to hurry around in the morning looking through the fridge for lunch ideas.
Our packed lunches are within nutritional guidelines and offers a variety of choice over a 3-week menu cycle. When I say nutritional that doesn’t mean it has to be boring, a lot of our lunch ideas have come from the children we serve every day.
This also takes away the worry away from parents that may be concerned about providing a lunch box containing meat or dairy due to lack of cold storage within school. We can reassure parents, that all lunches are made fresh daily and stored at the correct temperature.
Our packed lunch option also falls within the Greenvale Primary packed lunch policy.
Paying for school meals
School meals are free for all children this academic year. We encourage all of our parents/carers to take advantage of this. The meals are cooked on site in the school kitchen.
Please find both the hot and cold meal options on this page and discuss these with your child so that they know which meals to select each day. It is the parent/carers responsibility to keep all medical and allergy information up to date on Arbor and should you wish to discuss any of the menus regarding allergy information please contact our catering manager via the school office.
Robins parents/carers will be able to select their child’s meal choice each morning on the board outside the Poppy garden.
Breaktime Fruit and Drink
KS1 children will be provided with fruit/vegetables on a daily basis but can choose to bring in their own fruit in a named container if they wish.
KS2 children are required to bring their own fruit/vegetables for a breaktime snack in a named container if they wish. Grapes and cherries should be cut into small pieces and de-stoned.
Nut Free School
A reminder that we are a ‘nut-free’ school. We DO NOT allow nuts of ANY kind in ANY form! Please ensure there are no nut products in your child’s lunch boxes for example: peanut butter sandwiches, chocolate spreads, cereal bars, some granola bars, This list is not exhaustive, so please check the packaging of products closely.
