Lunchtimes and Break-times

Lunchtimes

Delicious and nutritious freshly prepared hot meals are available every day at Stanley Park Junior School. They are cooked by chefs from Greenshaw High School, transported here every day, and served to our children by their staff.

Children will select their choice of food each morning and be given a coloured wristband to wear dependent on their choice.

Main Course - each day there are 3 options:   

  • Meat/fish option
  • Vegetarian option
  • Jacket Potato – with different fillings throughout the week

Dessert: Children can choose from a selection of fresh fruit, yoghurts or hot pudding.

Please see the menu's at the bottom of this page which work on a three week cycle.

Dairy free and gluten free diets can also be catered for by prior arrangement.

Alternatively, you can send your child in with a packed lunch every day. Please ensure that you do not send in any food containing nuts, since we have some children in school with severe nut allergies.

PAYING FOR YOUR CHILDS' HOT MEALS

The hot meals cost £2.40 per day. Payment for school dinners is made on “ParentPay”, which is our online payment system.  We encourage payment on a half termly basis in order to reduce our admin costs.

ParentPay

In order to keep any wastage to a minimum and to reduce any unnecessary cost to the school, it is important that we keep to the following guidelines: 

  • Payment must be made on ParentPay in advance. We will be unable to continue to provide hot dinners if your account is not kept up to date.
  • Children must commit to hot dinners for half a term at a time –they will not be able to change between a hot dinner and packed lunch during each half term.
  • The school still has to pay for every meal which is ordered in the morning, so if children are unwell and go home before they have their hot dinner you will still be charged. Similarly, if your child goes out of school for an appointment over lunch time but has already ordered school dinner, you will be charged.
  • Dinners are ordered before 9.15am, so if your child has an appointment and will not be in class for morning registration, please order your dinner with the school office the day before.
  • If child has forgotten their packed lunch, we will call you to arrange for one to be brought into school.
