Meals are cooked on site using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. The menu is changed at least twice a year and involves a two week rotating plan. All children at The Alderton Infants School receive a free school meal. The Kitchen caters for a range of dietary requirements. We have a banding system in place to ensure children receive the correct meal - Blue - free choice, Green - vegetarian, Red - special dietary requirement or allergy. We ask that parents/carers contact the school office if for any reason they feel that it is necessary for their child to have a packed lunch. School meals are free to all EYFS and Key Stage 1 children in the UK.
Our cook is available to meet with parents / carers where a child has a particular food intolerance or allergy. We offer a vegetarian and gluten free options on request. Please contact the school office with initial enquiries.
At least once a year, families are invited to our share-a-lunch events where they can join their child for a school meal. Details of booking arrangements are sent out in advance.
