School Dinners – The Bird Table
School Meals and Snacks
At Greenvale, we are passionate about providing pupils with a healthy, balanced diet and in 2015, took the decision to take the catering ‘in house’. This has the following benefits:
- Allows us to plan a menu that we know will appeal to pupils who attend our school.
- Allows us to spend more money on purchasing quality ingredients and spending more ‘per plate’ as we do not have considerable management fees to pay.
- Allows the children to become more involved in learning about balanced diets and to work alongside staff in the kitchen.
Each term, menus are developed and schools are consulted to ensure that pupils tastes have been accounted for and that meals fit with nutritional regulations. There is always a good variety for pupils to choose from and menus are provided well in advance for families to consider before stating whether their child will require a school dinner.

Paying for school meals
School meals are available or children may bring a packed lunch. The meals are cooked on site in the school kitchen. Payment for meals is made via the Parent Pay website. All parents are issued with a personal password to enable them to put credit on their child’s account. Free meals are available for all Key Stage 1 pupils and for families who are eligible for Pupil Premium. If you think this may apply to you, forms are available from the school office.
We encourage children to bring in fresh fruit or a cereal bar for morning break. All children must bring a named bottle of water each day.
