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 may be 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. There is also a copy of the current menu below and under each Key Stage letters home area on the website.
When the register is called, your child will advise the teacher whether they would like to order a school dinner for that day 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.
