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.  


Children in Key Stage One  (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 £2.30 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.


An additional option of jacket potato at lunchtime is available if children prefer to have this.  The choice of fillings are on a rota basis:


                                                          Monday        - beans

                                                         Tuesday        - cheese

                                                         Wednesday  - beans

                                                         Thursday       - cheese

                                                          Friday            - beans


This is served with vegetables/salad and a dessert.  The cost is the same as a standard school dinner (£2.30).  Your child is 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.
