An important part of our ethos is around the provision of hot, fresh, nutritious meals. Sharing tasty, healthy school lunches is an integral part of the educational experience at an Avanti school. It’s also an opportunity to enhance social skills and table etiquette, ensuring lunchtimes are a positive experience for all. School staff often enjoy taking lunch with pupils, creating a family atmosphere.
The lunch meals cooked on-site are vegetarian (in line with the faith ethos of the school) and half-termly menus are also available on the School’s website.
If the lunch provision on offer does not meet your child’s needs, or if your child has specific diet requirements/preferences, please do speak to us so that we can provide for your child accordingly. We encourage parents to visit the school to sample the school lunches in order to satisfy themselves with the quality of provision.
Meals can be designed to meet the needs of children with specific allergies.
We strongly encourage parents who have financial constraints to apply for Free School Meals. An application form can be obtained from the school office. Any forms received by the school will be kept confidential.

Cost and Payment for School Lunches
The cost of the school lunches is kept to a minimum in relation to the quality of food. The cost for primary pupils is £2.10 a meal. The cost for secondary pupils is £2.35 a meal.
We only accept electronic payments for school meals. This easy and simple process is facilitated by ParentPay. ParentPay offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, safe in the knowledge that the technology used provides the highest internet security available. You will have a secure online account, with a unique user ID and password. You can change these to something you will easily remember and merge accounts of two or more children. Parents who are unable to make payments online can request a Paypoint Card. This will enable parents to pay at any store which displays the Paypoint sign.
Payments for school lunches must be made by the first day of the start of the term or in advance in half-term, full-term, or yearly instalments.
