School lunches

All our school meals are produced in-house by our cook, Mrs Jo Flowers, and cost £2.30 per day for all KS2 children.  Children in Reception and KS1 are provided school meals Free of Charge.

Every day your child can choose from two hot dishes or a school packed lunch and a dessert. We also provide cooked meals to Acorns Pre-School who join us in the school hall for lunch.

All the meals adhere to the government guidelines for healthy school meals. All our food is locally sourced and often the vegetables come from our own school garden – grown by the children in gardening club.

Our lunches fully adhere to government based standards for primary school children. This includes:

  • no offal;
  • no economy burgers;
  • no economy sausages;
  • no salt;
  • no chocolate (only cocoa powder);
  • no fried foods; and
  • no processed, shaped food products.

School packed lunch consists of: a baguette filled with either, ham (cooked on the premises), cheese, egg mayonnaise or tuna; a piece of fruit; yoghurt and dessert of the day.

We grow and use our own vegetables from the school garden, as much as possible. The rest of the fruit and vegetables are purchased from a local supplier.

Our meat is supplied fresh from the local butcher near Royal Wootton Bassett, which ensures our food is ethically produced and animal welfare standards are excellent.

We have a a three week menu and encourage our children to try new things, especially fruit and vegetables. We offer a wide variety of food with a choice of two dishes every day.  Special diets can be catered for.

The children at Christian Malford enjoy their school lunches and lunch hour. We encourage and expect good table manners and for children to benefit from the social aspects of eating together.
