At George Eliot Primary we actively promote healthy lifestyles and a key part of our work in this is ensuring that all pupils have a healthy and nutritious lunch.

Our school lunches are prepared daily on site in line with all government recommendations. Caterlink is our school lunch provider.

We encourage parents to take up the offer of our hot school lunches.  For all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, they are entitled to a free school meal.  This is part of a government initiative called ‘Universal Free School Meals’.

For pupils in Years 3 – 6, some may be entitled to free school meals.  You can check your eligibility of free school meals through using the following link (

If you are not entitled to free school meals, you can check at the school office for the costs of a a school lunch.

If you decide not to have a hot school lunch, then you can send your child to school with a healthy packed lunch.

Packed Lunch Policy

All pupils who bring a packed lunch must ensure that what they bring is in line with the school’s packed lunch policy.
