Olive Dining Catering supply our school with a healthy and varied menu where meals are cooked fresh on site each day. With a selection of meat, vegetarian and salad options every day there is a great choice along with good value for money. Whilst we have the standard menu options, we can cater for any dietary need on request. All of our schools are completely nut free.
Our school meals are a great part of the day supporting children's health and focus as well as developing their social skills. Olive Dining also support cultural diversity and so help us celebrate with themed menu days such as Chinese New Year, Diwali, Christmas and much more!
Mayor of London school meal Programme 2023/2024
City Hall is ensuring all primary school children who attend state schools in London will receive free school meals for the full academic year, starting this September 2023. This means that everyone will receive free meals for the Academic Year starting in September 2023-July 2024, with no action required. This is an extension of the existing Universal Infant Free School Meal scheme that means all Key Stage 1 pupils already receive free school dinners.
Mayor of London school meal Programme 2024-2025
The Universal Free School Meals programme has been extended until the middle of 2025. Please see the Mayor of London's Letter to Families below for more information.
Free School Meals
Separately to this, those parents/carers whose children would qualify for Free School Meals under the Government’s existing offer should also continue to apply for free school meals as before. To do so you will need to be in receipt of one of the below benefits:
- Income Support
- Income Based Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Income Based Employment and Support Allowance
- Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
- Support under part IV of the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999
- Child Tax Credit with no working tax credit and have an income not exceeding £16,190
- Working Tax Credit Run on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit – with net earned income of no more than £7,400
Your child will receive a free dinner from September 2023-July 2024 regardless, however if you are eligible to apply for Free School Meals under the Government’s existing offer, there are other additional benefits to the school worth £1,300 per year. That’s extra money to spend on enrichment activities, teacher development, and targeted support for the children that need it most. The London Borough of Bromley also operates food vouchers during the holiday for Free School Meal recipients.
If you think the above applies to you, please complete an application to ensure that the school, and the children continue to receive additional funding - Free School Meals Application Form. Guidance notes are found below.
Food Allergies / Intolerances
If your child has a food allergy or intolerance, you will need to complete a Health Declaration Form which is available from the school office.
Children may bring a packed lunch, which should be in a suitable container. In the interest of safety we do not allow cans, glass bottles or 'glass type' vacuum flasks.
Please ensure that you do not give your child packed lunches that contain nuts, particularly peanuts, in any form, e.g. peanut butter.
Please see Packed Lunch Guidelines.
