Whitley And Eggborough Community Primary School

School Meals

We pride ourselves in supplying our children with excellent food. We feel that it is one of the most important parts of a child's life - to eat properly.     
Eating a healthy diet enables a child to live life to the full and gives them a better performance all round, specifically helping with their concentration levels - which in turn affects achievement.  


From September 2014 key stage one children (reception, years 1 and 2) are entitled to a free school meal. For key stage two pupils (years 3, 4, 5 and 6) the price is £2.10 per child per day.

In our primary schools our meals;

  • have a three-menu cycle, allowing children to become familiar with the food served;
  • are changed every term to reflect the seasons; and 
  • are written in consultation with pupils and cooks.


From June 2016 we will be offering an additional option of jacket potato at lunchtime.  The choice of fillings will be on a rota basis:


                                                          Monday  -    beans

                                                         Tuesday  -   cheese

                                                     Wednesday  -  tuna

                                                       Thursday  -  beans

                                                           Friday  -  cheese


This will be served with vegetables/salad and a desert.  The cost will be the same as a standard school dinner (£2.10).  Your child will be able to choose this option in the morning during lunch register, however the system remains the same:  school dinner or packed lunch with half a terms notice to change.
