School Dinners

The school lunches at Shortlanesend School are produced by Chartwells Foods Services.

Our meals are served in the hall.  Children are free to choose to eat either school dinners or have a packed lunch brought from home on a daily basis. There is a daily choice of meat and vegetarian hot meals, jacket potatoes, pasta or meat / vegetarian picnic plates.

We operate a system on Parent Pay which allows you to order the meal that they would like to eat at lunch time in advance. This had helped to reduce the food waste that the kitchen produce since they only cook to order.

Free School Meals

Not to be confused with the free school meals for all KS1 pupils, it is vital that all Key Stage 1 pupils who are eligible to claim Free School Meals are registered in order for schools to receive the Pupil Premium funding.  

The 'Free Schools Meals Application Form' has been revised and is available as a download below.  Alternatively you can apply online. Parents/carers complete one application for all of their children – whether it is for Free School Meals (so Year 3 and above who must pay for their school lunches) or for their child’s school to receive Pupil Premium only (i.e. for KS1 children who already receive a free school lunch).
