School Meals

The London Borough of Havering currently provides Universal Free School Meals for all children in Reception and Years 1 and 2. Alternatively your child may choose to bring a packed lunch to school.

Junior Children – Havering Catering Service provides school meals which are paid for using sQuid, a flexible & secure cashless payment service (www.squidcard.com). sQuid will provide you with a unique registration code for each child. The cost of a school dinner is £2.20. Drinking water is freely available for all children at lunchtime. If your child is entitled to free school meals, their sQuid account will automatically credited with the cost of a school meal each day, which will be removed at the end of the day regardless of whether your child has taken a school meal or not.

Copies of the school menu are sent home to parents. Each day a meal consists of one item from each food group. This meal aims to give your child a good balance of nutrients. On occasions, the Catering Service will have special menus which will also be sent home.  A link to the current menu is both below and also under “Other Class Information” tab for each year group.

When the register is called each day, your child will advise the teacher whether they would like to order a school dinner or whether they have brought a packed lunch.

We are very proud that we are a ‘Healthy Eating School’ and our cook and her team provide a delicious selection of meals daily from the new Healthy Options Menu.

You may be entitled to free school meals.  Click the link below for further advice from Havering:
