Children are encouraged to eat the healthy balanced meal prepared in school so that they are best able to learn well, and have energy for play times.

Menus are available below so parents can see the range of food on offer. Specific dietary needs, for example halal meat, are catered for.

The daily cost of lunches is notified via newsletter and parents are asked to pay in advance. There is no charge for those pupils eligible for free school meals. 

Children are allowed to bring a packed lunch to school. Parents must give one term’s notice of their intention to change between school lunch and packed lunch.

Children in nursery and reception children receive a carton of milk each day free of charge. Children from nursery to Year Two are given a piece of fresh fruit each day free of charge. Children may also bring fruit from home to eat at morning break time.

Letter From Westminster

New school meals contractor appointed

Dear Parent / Guardian,

As you may know, last year over 4,000 parents completed our survey about school meals and from this we know that the quality of meals is the most important thing to parents.

After a thorough procurement process, we are now delighted to announce that Caterlink has been awarded the contract for nursery, primary and special schools (Lot 1) in Westminster City Council (WCC). School representatives were involved in every step of the evaluation process, from shaping the assessment questions to tasting the food prepared by the contractors. All involved were very impressed with Caterlink's performance, particularly in the following areas:

  • Food quality and sourcing was of a very high standard.
  • Ability to engage schools, meet bespoke needs and offer tailored information and feedback sessions with schools.
  • Experience and ability to meet the diverse needs of individual schools within the Borough for schools requiring both a halal meal offer only and non halal offer only. This includes full traceability audits.
  • Experience in delivering a smooth and professional transition.

The new contract is due to start on April 11th 2016.

We are committed to working in partnership with you in order to make this change a success. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us on 0207 641 3391 or email us at:

Yours sincerely

The School Meals Contract Team
