Hot school meals are served at Chiltern Wood and are available to all of our pupils. We offer a variety of healthy meals and can cater for different dietary requests and also different textures. Please be aware that only halal and vegetarian meals are selected from the menu. (See menus below).
Pupils and students can alternatively bring in a packed lunch if this is preferable.
Changes in Free School Meals from September 2014
Research shows that better food in schools is improving what children eat during the school day, and there’s evidence of a clear link between what children eat at lunchtime in school, where they eat it and how they focus with their teachers in the afternoon.
From September 2014, all children in reception, year 1 and year 2 in statefunded schools in England will be eligible for free school meals. This includes infant pupils in maintained infant and primary schools, free schools, academies, special schools and pupil referral units.
Free school meals are also available to pupils in years 3 and above whose parents receive certain benefits and register using the form attached. Please return this form to your child’s school if you think you qualify.
