The school meals at St. Luke's School are cooked on the school site in the school kitchen and there are a choice of hot meals provided every day. Menus offer children the chance to have vegetables and fruit as part of their lunch. These are available to all children at a cost of £2.15 per day. £10.75 per week. Payment for hot school lunches should be sent to school on a Monday in a named envelope - cheques should be made payable to HCC or there is the option to pay online. The infants are served first, commencing at 11.50am, followed by the Juniors. Each week, the order in which junior classes are served is changed. All children eat their lunch in the school hall. A drink of water is always available. Some parents prefer that their children bring sandwiches to eat for lunch and they have the option to bring their own healthy packed lunch.
Due to the increasing incidence of nut allergies amongst children, we ask children to exclude nuts or products in packed lunches. The school is a NUT FREE ZONE! Contact with nuts or nut products is potentially life threatening to children with nut allergies.
Universal Free School Meals
All children in the Infants, i.e. those children in Years R, 1 and 2 will automatically receive a hot school dinner, free of charge. This means that all children need to do each day is to choose from the menu (see link above).
There is no need to pay anything as the government have already provided schools with additional funding to cover this initiative. In support of this, although the take up of the free hot meals is not compulsory, unless we hear otherwise from individual parents, we will automatically provide all Infant children with a hot meal free of charge.
