Meals are free for all of KS1 and anyone in KS2 on Free School Meals. They are also available to purchase for all other KS2 children at the normal cost of £2.25 per day.
Children can choose each day whether to have a hot school meal, salad bar or bring their own packed lunch. Chart wells provide our meals on a daily basis and cost £2.25 per day. All the meals are nutritionally balanced following strict Government guidelines and consist of a main course, vegetarian or salad option, a starchy food such as potatoes or rice, a portion of bread and a dessert or fresh fruit. All the meals are produced from fresh ingredients each day including freshly baked bread. All meals contain at least 2 portions of the recommended 5 a day fruit and vegetable target.
Allergies & intolerances
Chartwells will accommodate children with allergies or intolerances. Remember you must complete a special dietary form for Chartwells; they will not accept the old Eden form. Please come into the office and speak to Mrs Herberson who can liaise with our cook.
All of Chartwell's Halal meals are produced in a dedicated central production unit. Again, you can speak to Mrs Herberson in the office for more information.
Chartwells provide a Salad Bar option for the children. Children can choose one protein item - ham, eggs or cheese; a selection of dry salads, tomatoes, lettuce, peppers; rice salads or coleslaw to have with a wrap, bread roll or half jacket potato ... and a dessert, all for £2.25! This is a popular option and if your child would like to try it they'll need to let us know during the usual morning registration, eg School Dinner, Packed Lunch, Salad Bar.
School dinners must be paid for in advance by in cash or cheques (made payable to "Schools General") in a named envelope on a Monday morning. As soon as our online payment system is up and running again, we will let you know.
Horfield children enjoy their delicious lunches and as a special birthday surprise for Bev, our Head cook who has been cooking here at Horfield for many years, all the children made birthday cards to say thank you for her hard work and delicious, fresh, healthy food which they enjoy every day!
Healthy eating could hold the key to a long and healthy life so we have a link below to an established website called "Nutritionist Resource" which provides easy access to nutritional advice from professionals. They offer information about the areas in which nutrition might help and articles written by qualified nutritionists.
