School Lunches & Free School Meal Information
We are fortunate to have high standards of school meals provision at Nanaksar Primary. Pupils can choose between having a hot or cold school meal, or can alternatively choose to bring their own packed lunch into school. All lunches cooked on the premises are vegetarian and planned according to Government guidelines. All food brought in from home must also be vegetarian and nut-free. Please see the school lunch menu below.
All pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to free school meals and we highly encourage them to have school lunches. From Year 3, school lunches are paid for.
We are a ‘Healthy Hillingdon’ school and as such, encourage healthy eating for all our pupils, staff and visitors. We do not allow sweets, chocolate bars, fizzy drinks and chewing gum at school. For NHS guidance on healthy lunchbox recipes - please click here.
The school participates in the National Schools Fruit and Vegetable Scheme and all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils are encouraged to eat free fruit or vegetables every day. Key Stage 2 Pupils can bring their own fruit or vegetable snack for break times.
Parents/Carers can subscribe to a Milk Scheme which enables their child to have a carton of milk delivered each day. To register for the Cool Milk scheme visit: www.coolmilk.com.
Parents/Carers who receive Income Support, Tax Credit or Job Seekers Allowance are entitled to claim free school meals for their child. It is important parents/carers apply for these meals if entitled to do so. It is a ‘right’ and there is no stigma attached to applying for free school meals. Information on eligibility for Free School Meals is obtainable from your Local Authority website. You can also check your eligibility using this link:
