At John Wilkinson Primary School, we have a choice of hot meals that are cooked fresh on site each day. The children will be able to see the menu in advance to help them choose whether they have a hot school dinner.
We organise our lunch hour into three sittings where children eat alongside children from other classes, making it a social dining experience.
Sitting 1: Reception, Year 1 and Year 2
Sitting 2: Year 3 and Year 4
Sitting 3: Year 5 and Year 6
We have a wonderful catering team who specialise in providing healthy, nutritious and delicious food with plenty of variety and all food allergies and dietary requirements are catered for. To help ensure the meal choices are what the children really enjoy, we have established a children's committee of representatives from each class who are given the opportunity to consult regularly with their class peers on food preferences, and use this information to help influence future menus with our catering team’s advice and support.
Children who decide they would prefer a packed lunch also eat in the hall so that, as a school community, we enjoy a shared lunchtime experience together.
If you are interested in your child having school dinners please contact the school office where they will be able to give you further information.
