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. Accent Catering is our school lunch provider.

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

Some pupils in Years 3 to 6 may be entitled to free school meals. You can check your eligibility of free school meals using the following link:

We encourage parents to check their eligibility for free school meals even if your child is still in EYFS and KS1.

If you are not entitled to free school meals, the cost of a school lunch is £2.30 per day or £11.50 per week.
If you decide that your child will not have a hot school lunch, please send your child in to school with a healthy packed lunch. Please give the school office two weeks’ notice of your intention to change your child’s meal plan. Any change must be for at least half a term.

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.
