School Lunch

An important part of our ethos is around the provision of hot, fresh, nutritious meals. Sharing tasty, healthy school lunches is an integral part of the educational experience at an Avanti school. It’s also an opportunity to enhance social skills and sitting etiquette, ensuring lunchtimes are a positive experience for all. School staff often enjoy taking lunch with pupils, creating a family atmosphere.

The lunch meals cooked are pure vegetarian (in line with the faith ethos of the school) and the Menu is changed every term. 

If the lunch provision on offer does not meet your child’s needs, or if your child has specific diet requirements/preferences, please do speak to us so that we can provide for your child accordingly. Meals can be designed to meet the needs of children with specific allergies. We encourage parents to visit the school to sample the school lunches in order to satisfy themselves with the quality of provision. Alternatively, we ask that parents who choose to provide a packed lunch instead ensure they contain good quality, healthy food.

We strongly encourage parents who have financial constraints to apply for Free School Meals. An application form can be obtained from the school office. Any forms received by the school will be kept confidential.
