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.
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: https://app.schoolgrid.co.uk/
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:
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.
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.

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.
