School Meals at Wheatfield
Our school meals are cooked on-site every day by Integra Catering. A three week 'rolling menu' is published three times a year to keep the food choices varied and seasonal. Each day, children can choose from a meat, vegetarian or jacket potato main meal. There are also different sides (including a daily salad bar) and puddings available each day.
School meals or packed lunch?
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 qualify for a free school meal every day. Families can choose not to take this meal and instead provide their child with a packed lunch. Children in Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6) can choose whether to order a school meal (£2.20 per day) or bring in a packed lunch. Please see below for more details.
How do I pay for school meals?
School meals can be paid for via our online payment system, School Gateway.

How does my child order their meal?
Each morning your child's teacher takes a lunch register. Your child will need to let their teacher know whether they are having a school meal or a packed lunch. If they are having a school meal they will also need to decide whether they are choosing the 'main meal', 'vegetarian meal' or a 'jacket potato'.
Teachers will support children by reminding them of the choices for the day. It is also helpful for parents to remind children (especially our young children) which option they are most likely to eat.
Free School Meals
Some families will qualify for free school meals and we would strongly encourage you to apply if you believe you are eligible (even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2). As well as your child receiving a free meal, the school also receives additional income (the Pupil Premium) to support your child's learning. Please speak with a member of our office team if you want to find out more. Call 01454 868610 to make an appointment.

Healthy Lunch Boxes
If your child brings a packed lunch into school then we ask that it contains a healthy, nutritionally balanced selection of food items.

Wheatfield is a nut free school!
We have a number of children with severe nut allergies. Please do not include nuts (or nut based products) in your child's packed lunch. Thank you.
