Chisenhale lunches - we have changed our caterer to Nourish
The new menus are attractive, informative, nutritionally analysed and up-dated every term. The company works closely with schools, holding tasting sessions where the pupils sample a range of dishes and feed back their comments to them. They work with school councils, attending meetings and acting on the children's comments and requests. Please see below to view the new exciting menu.
Children can choose to have a delicious, healthy, hot lunch, cooked on the premises by our experienced kitchen team, or bring a packed lunch from home. All food prepared in school is halal, including all meat dishes. Milk, bread and yoghurt are organic and any eggs used are free-range. Where possible, vegetables are fresh and seasonal. The school has a healthy eating policy and packed lunches must keep to this policy; this means no crisps, fizzy drinks, chocolate or sweets. Chisenhale also has a whole-school no nuts or sesame policy due to children's allergies. This also applies to packed lunches brought from home.
At present, all children from Reception to Year 6 are entitled to free school meals, funded by the national and local governments. Nursery children must pay for their dinners and parents can pay on a daily, weekly or monthly basis at the office window. School lunches must be paid for before they are eaten. Families receiving certain benefits or living on a low income may be entitled to free meals for nursery children too. Please ask in the office for a pupil premium form or for more details.
School lunches cost £2.30 each day and £11.75 for the week.
You can pay for lunches online using our Parent Pay system or with a debit/credit card. Please ask in the school office for more information.
Mr Nourish the company mascot
Mr Nourish is the company mascot. He is a big hit with everyone guiding them through menus and writing his own monthly newsletter advising them of upcoming events, special days and seasonal foods. Mr Nourish visits many schools meeting the pupils during lunch and assemblies so look out for him!
