Healthy School Meals

St Elisabeth's CE operates a healthy eating policy. At lunchtime we encourage children to have a hot meal. These are cooked on site by Totally Local Company and are nutritionally balanced and always offer a choice. School meals are cooked on the premises; menus are available on request from the school office and special requirements such as vegetarian meals, or Halal meat are available. As a Healthy School, we offer a balanced selection of meal choices for our pupils. Children in Reception through to Year 2 also have a choice of fruit at morning break.

Each day there is a choice of two main courses or a jacket potato with a choice of fillings, all served with vegetables and a carbohydrate. There is a daily choice of healthy desserts including fresh fruit platter, yoghurts, or the pudding of the day. Fresh bread, a salad bar, milk and water are always available. We display the weekly menu in school or click on the documents below to view sample menus. We use a rolling menu as a general guide which is subject to change.


School meals are £2.55 per meal. If a child is in Reception, or Years 1 and 2, they automatically qualify for Universal Free School Meals under the universal scheme. If you think you may be entitled to claimed Free School Meals, please check your eligibility using the link on this page. 

You can order and pay for your child’s meals via the ParentPay app.

If you wish to change from school meals to a packed lunch, please give a minimum of one weeks notice.  

Packed Lunch

Alternatively children may bring a packed lunch. Please note that children should not bring crisps, sweets or chocolate into school at any time in line with the healthy eating policy. Children should bring plain water to drink during the day in labelled bottles. These should be taken home and refilled each day.  

Should you wish your child to bring a packed lunch from home, please see the website link at the bottom of this page for some healthy ideas and advice.


Children should bring plain water to drink from in the classroom, so long as it has a sports cap and is named. These should be taken home and refilled each day. Please note - juice/fizzy drinks are NOT permitted and may be confiscated.
