Pork sausages are NOT suitable for a beef-free diet and we are no longer able to offer quorn sausage as a fifth option on those days.
At Holy Trinity C of E Primary School, we are pleased to be able to offer healthy daily choice menus. The meals are cooked to order and weekly menus are displayed at school and online.
We are one of the few schools in the area to offer an innovative and unique cook to order choice system. Children choose their meal each day and receive a different coloured wrist band depending on the choice made. To see a typical weekly menu please click on one of the links below.
All children of infant age (Reception, Years 1 and 2) are eligible to a daily free school meal. Along with several schools in the Surrey Heath Learning Partnership, we expect all infant children to take up this opportunity, as we feel it is a good way for children to try new things together and ease the peer pressure and burden for parents who make the packed lunches!
There is always a healthy sandwich bag option (provided by Surrey Commercial Services), alongside the hot meal choices and, as we have found with the free fruit and vegetables scheme for infants, children will try new things which before they may have rejected. In addition, parents can be guaranteed that their child will be having a healthy meal.
There is always a wide choice and the kitchen will accommodate any allergies. If you have any concerns, please let the school know. Parents of children with allergies are asked to meet with the school cook to discuss menu choices and to create a plan.
Lower School children make their menu choices as they go into class - they move their name on a chart inside/outside the classroom to the colour of the meal they have chosen.
Upper School children make their school dinner choices in the hall at 8.45 am and purchase with a token (see below). Upper School children have the choice to bring a packed lunch which is eaten in Willow Hall, but parents are asked not to include sweets, fizzy drinks and products containing nuts. Upper school children may bring in break time snacks of dried or fresh fruit, or raw vegetables for the morning.
The lunchtime service is provided by a working kitchen and all food is cooked on the premises. Lunchtime is supervised and children are encouraged to eat all their traditional main course before tucking in to a delicious pudding or cheese and biscuits. Fresh fruit and a salad bar is always available. Freshly baked bread, pastry, cookies and desserts are provided daily.
Our meal service is run by Surrey County Council Commercial Services and they continually strive to improve the diets of our children. It is closely monitored by the Governing Body who instigate changes as required and on a continual basis. Mechanically recovered meat and genetically modified ingredients are NOT used. Please note that if, for any reason, your child in upper school has to go home after 10 am, they cannot obtain a refund for any dinner band bought that day as the meal would have already been prepared and the school will be charged for it.
Please note that there will be no roast on any Thursday when we are not here for the full week.
The cost of a school meal is £2.20 (£2.25 from September), payable online, or by cheque - we do not have the facilities to accept cash. Thank you.
School Lunch Tokens
If you are registered with ParentMailPMX you can pay online for school lunches. This still allows the children to choose whether they want to have school lunch each day and to give them 4 menu choices. In order to keep this flexibility, when you pay for lunches online you will need to collect tokens for each meal purchased. Your child will use a token in the hall instead of cash to buy a lunch band. This is how it works:-
• Pay online for lunches in multiples of 5 or 10.
• An adult needs to collect the lunch tokens, and sign for them if they have been paid for online.
• Give a token to your child each day they want a school lunch.
• The child swaps their token for a school lunch band, instead of using cash (queue as normal).
Tokens are worth the value of a school meal so they need to be treated like cash. For this reason we prefer larger quantities of tokens to be collected by an adult, but they can be collected from the office by your child (at your own risk) any day from 8 am - 3.30 pm.
SPECIAL MENUS - Please note the menus below are only for pupils with special dietary requirements. If you do have special dietary needs, you MUST let the School Office know.
