Meals and Snacks

All children stay at school for lunch. If you wish your child to go home, please contact the office so that arrangements can be made for them to sign in and out.

We promote a healthy lifestyle whenever possible. For morning break we encourage children to bring healthy fresh fruit to school. We do not allow crisps, biscuits or chocolate at morning break.

Your child can have a school lunch or bring a packed lunch from home.

School meals cost £2.20 a day. 

We are pleased that we have a new school dinner provider to provide us with our school dinners from November 2021. Nottinghamshire Council are the company who will oversee this, with meals being cooked at a local Derby school in a similar arrangement to that we had previously with Derby Moor. They are providing us with a great menu full of different daily choices (click here) and the children, via the School Council, will be able to have input into this menu next time it is reviewed.

The menu works on a three-weekly cycle and information regarding ingredients and allergens can be found by clicking the link below:

Please remember that dinners must be paid for in advance and we are operating a cashless system. Please contact Mrs Wagstaff (cwagstaff@gaytonj.derby.sch.uk) in the school office if you do not currently access your online account to pay dinner money and she can send log in details to you.

Packed lunches should be brought to school in a named lunch box or bag, preferably insulated or with a coolant, as we do not have cold storage facilities.
