Lunchtimes and Break-times


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.

Ordering Lunches

We ask parents to order lunches on the Wednesday, ready for the following week. We use our cashless catering provider, School Grid. Please click on the link at the bottom of the page or follow this link to order your child's lunch: 

  • The "first parent" account is registered with the system.
  • When you setup your account for the first time, you can notify the system of your child's food allergies.  The system will then only show you available menu items.
  • Parents can order lunches up to a term in advance.
  • Payment is not required during the school year 2023/24 as all meals are funded through the Mayor for London's funding.
  • Changes can be made up until midnight the night before the meal is taken.
  • Please contact Schoolgrid directly for any queries with the system.

At the current time, children are able to have a mixture of packed lunch/school dinners each week. For this system to be successful, parents need to submit their orders by the previous Wednesday for the following week. 

Our school lunches are provided for us by Greenshaw Learning Services.  You can find details of the current menu here and online through the SchoolGrid ordering system.

Main Course - each day there are 3 options:   

  • Meat/fish option  (On Monday's we have another vegetarian dish)
  • 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.

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.

Preparing a Healthy Packed Lunch

Lunch is an important part of the school day and it's important that your child receives a good balanced school lunch to feel fulfilled and ready for an afternoon of work in the classroom.

You must avoid sugary food, chocolate and nuts.  High sugar food add to dental decay and cause highs and lows during the day, they are best avoided.  Supermarkets often sell high sugar foods as if they are healthy - it's best to read the label.

The Eatwell Guide can really help you to make good choices, to provide a balanced packed lunch.

According to NHS choices a balanced lunchbox should contain:

  • Starchy foods like bread, rice, potatoes or pasta
  • Protein foods like meat, fish, eggs or beans
  • A dairy item, like cheese or yoghurt
  • Vegetables or salad and a portion of fruit

We do realise that children can be very fussy eaters and at lunchtime we will encourage them to eat and come back to you if we have any concerns.  We trust you to provide healthy food that your child can eat, you know best and we will work with you to ensure that your child is well fed at lunchtime.


Milk and fruit is available for the children at morning break.

  • If you would like your child to have milk at break time, please log on to to make your payment. (Please see the information below.)
  •  Fruit can be bought at 20p per item from the year 6 monitors in the playground.
