Eton Porny are delighted to be able to offer a hot school lunch to all children at school. Menus rotate on a three week basis throughout each term, and are changed seasonally. The children have a daily option of either a set hot meal, vegetarian alternative or jacket potato with a choice of topping. Children place their lunch order each morning in their classrooms and the food is all cooked fresh daily on site.
Universal Free School Meals were introduced in September 2014. This means that all children in Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for a free school meal every day. Naturally, we hope that parents of children in these year groups will take advantage of this fantastic opportunity for their child to enjoy a free hot meal every day.
All children may also be eligible for Free School Meals, a scheme by which the school attracts funding from the government called Pupil Premium. As well as Free School Meals, this funding is targeted at the registered pupils to help support their education in a variety of ways. If you think you may be eligible for funding, please register your child for this benefit. The alternative is that the school will miss out on vital funding. To find out if you are eligible for Free School Meals please complete the form here.
The cost for Year 3 and Year 4 pupils of a hot school meal is £2.20 per day and all lunches must be paid for in advance by cash or cheque at the school office.
Copies of the menu are emailed home when they change for parents reference. The latest menu can be seen below.
Children are welcome to bring a packed lunch to school but please can parents ensure that packed lunches contain a sandwich or savory alternative (e.g. pasta salad or rice salad) and some healthy extras (e.g. fruit or vegetables, cheese, yoghurt, cereal bar). Water is available for all children in the dining hall at the tables, but if an additional drink is included this must be non-fizzy.
Please keep crisps and chocolate snacks to an absolute minimum and sweets are not permitted in packed lunches.
NO NUTS are permitted in packed lunches due to allergy risks.
