The Highway Primary School

School Meals

WE ARE A NUT-FREE SCHOOL

OWING TO SEVERE NUT ALLERGIES IN SCHOOL, WE DO NOT ALLOW NUTS OR NUT PRODUCTS OF ANY KIND TO BE BROUGHT INTO SCHOOL. 

At The Highway Primary School, we believe that the best option for children at lunchtime is to have the hot school dinner, provided through our partnership with Nourish, an external catering company.

During Academic Year 2023/24 all primary aged children in London have the opportunity to take a free hot school meal every day.  We believe a hot school dinner option is much better for the children’s learning and health. We recognise the evidence that states:

  • Children are better prepared for learning if they eat well
  • Children make more progress if they have eaten the right nutritional lunch
  • Only 1% of packed lunches provide the correct nutrition
  • Eating hot dinners is an important social occasion and the children learn vital social skills.

Nourish meals provide all the nutrients that children require through the week. They produce a menu which has a four weekly cycle - please see the current menu below:

SCHOOL MENU: APRIL - OCTOBER 2024

 

Our goal is to have ZERO packed lunches but if you do provide your child with a packed lunch please see our Healthy Packed Lunch Policy
