Ideal School Meals - Prodiving Healthy Cooked Meals to Schools across the East of England

Meals for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are free. Meals for children in all other years can be purchased at a cost of £2.30 per meal. Families in receipt of certain benefits may be entitled to Free School Meals. Please see Miss Morrisroe who would be delighted to support you with an application. We recognise that occasionally ordering online can be problematic; in the first instance please call Ideal School Meals on

01522 246424

If your issue is still not resolved the school will happily place the order on your behalf.

If you believe you may be entitled to Free School Meals for your child then please follow the advice in the document attached below.

Packed Lunches

Alternatively, your child might prefer to bring a packed lunch each day. We do recommend a balanced selection of healthy food for lunchtime, as part of our Healthy Schools programme. We find the right food stimulates the right concentration. Please be aware we cannot have nut based products in packed lunches due to allergies.

Children are not permitted to bring fizzy drinks, chocolate bars or sweets in their packed lunches or for snacks at playtime. .
