Holwell School Catering and Weekly Menu
Our school kitchen is run in-house by our fully trained, experienced Catering Manager - Mrs Chalkley and her team. We offer excellent, well balanced, healthy school meals with a choice of hot food and a daily salad bar. All dishes are prepared on the premises using fresh ingredients, including locally sourced fresh fruit and vegetables. Children are actively encouraged to try new things as well as old favourites. However, we are also aware of the value of educating children to appreciate that everything is good in moderation; therefore each Friday is a “Fun” meal. We also have themed lunches when we offer the opportunity to try food from other countries such as China, Greece and India
We are more than willing to accommodate those with special dietary requirements.
Children starting school and staying for cooked meals are expected to be capable of handling a knife and fork and feeding themselves.
Facilities are also available for children who prefer to bring a packed lunch. Please see our Healthy Eating Policy for guidance on packed lunches.
Meals are free for children in Reception, Years 1 and 2.
£2.90 per day for children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
