At Manley Park we encourage healthy diets in our school at all times, by providing nutritious meals and promoting the benefits of regular access to clean drinking water and healthy snacks.
Our school meals are prepared in-house by our catering staff, who with the support of Dukefield Foodservice Limited, help us provide our children with a healthy, balanced meal that is culturally acceptable and meets all nutritional and dietary standards. There is a varied menu that runs on a three-weekly cycle, featuring a range of options for your child every day. Special diets and allergies are taken into account when preparing school meals.
School meals are free to all pupils from Reception to Year 2, and to older pupils who are entitled to a free school meal. All other pupils whose parents / carers have requested a school meal can pay for this via Parent Pay, or can bring a healthy packed lunch if they prefer.
For guidelines on what a healthy packed lunch should consist of or for more about how we cater for food allergies and special diets please refer to our Healthy Food and Drinks Policy below.
