School Meals

The Oaks Diner

We at Longwood Primary School are very proud of our kitchen and dining facility which was officially opened in September 2018. Our newly appointed and highly skilled chef provides in-house catering and serves the healthiest, tastiest and best value meal service possible for our children. 

The menu is planned within the guidelines of the School Food Plan recommended by the DfE to ensure that your child's school meal forms part of a balanced diet. 

The catering staff are part of our whole school team and they work incredibly hard alongside CMC, our Catering consultants. We have theme days, taster days, parent and grandparent days and other offers and promotions so please keep a look out on our school newsletter for news.

We are proud to announce we have now released our new school menu which will commence from 29.04.2019 - please see below 

To ensure that your child receives a meal that they enjoy parents now order their child's meals through Parent Pay. This can be done for up to 100 days in advance. This not only ensures that your child receives the meal they want but also reduces waste in the school kitchen making sure we can keep our school meal prices as low as possible. The cost of a school meal is currently only £2.20 for a main meal and a desert.

Please remember that all Children in Reception and Years 1&2 are currently entitled to a free school meal.

If you feel that you are entitled to free school meals then we urge you to register (even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2). Please register with the school office to ensure that we continue to receive the pupil premium to support our school and your children.

Your child may be entitled to free school meals if you receive:

  • Income Support.
  • Income Related Employment & Support Allowance. 
  • Child Tax Credit.

For an instant answer on whether you are entitled to free school meals applications can now be made online at:  Free School Meals

Should you wish for your child to bring in lunch from home please see our packed lunch guide below which gives examples of what a healthy packed lunch should consist of.
