Meals at Greswold are provided by Solihull Catering Services who are busy in the kitchen each morning preparing quality lunches for our children and staff. Children in Reception and Year 1 eat their lunch in the Lower School Hall while the rest of the school eat in the Upper School Hall.
Everyday there is a choice of two main courses and a vegetarian option. Children can also opt for a tasty wrap or baguette with fillings including ham, cheese or tuna. Additionally, there is a salad bar available each day and a choice of breads. For pudding there is also a choice and each day fresh fruit is available. We do not serve fizzy drinks and fried foods are served no more than twice a week.
You can view the current menu for November 2018 to April 2019 here.
The current price of a two course meal is £1.90 per day (£9.50 per week) for Nursery and £2.05 per day (£10.25 per week) for pupils in Key Stage 2. Parents can pay weekly, termly or half termly for school meals. See below for details about meals for children in Reception, Year 1 and 2.
Payment must be made via the ParentPay system and we would ask that you pay for dinners in advance each Monday or pay a larger amount to cover the half term.
Please advise the school kitchen of any special dietary needs or allergies so we can accommodate them. Please note your child’s current lunch choice will continue for a whole half term unless a change is made in the last week of the this term.
Universal Infant Free School Meals
From September 2014, every child in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be provided with a two-course lunch, which will save every parent approximately £400 each year; bringing a packed lunch to school will no longer be possible for children in these year groups. Parents may find it useful to read our FAQ about the arrangements for Reception and Key Stage 1.
Free School Meals for Key Stage 2
Free meals are provided for children whose parents receive either Income Support Jobseeker's Allowance (income-based), support under part V1 of the immigration and Asylum Act 1999 or Child Tax/Pension credit (income related).
Application forms are available from the School Office or by phoning the School Asset Support Team on 0121 704 6611.
