From Reception onwards, children at Nightingale can choose to have a school dinner or bring in a packed lunch at lunchtime but we encourage parents to opt for a school dinner. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal on a daily basis. Once children are in Year 3, many children will have to pay for their school meal. You can find out more about this here. However, some pupils are entitled to a free school meal – you can check if you are entitled by following this link .
Our school meals are freshly cooked on site on a daily basis by Nourish. You can see the current menus by clicking on the links below. Here is what Nourish say about their school meals:
We believe every child needs a satisfying meal at lunchtime, fuelling them for the afternoon ahead. Nurturing the importance of a healthy and balanced diet, we provide a nutritious meal every day to nourish from within.
Our menus change in line with the seasons to bring fresh and vibrant options whatever the weather.
Our wholesome lunchtime meals guarantee the nutrients and vitamins a child needs, with a variety of carbohydrates, protein and fibre. Our menu is fully compliant with School Food Standards and we take pride in providing nutritious but tasty food.
