Meals and Snacks

Nearly 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 moving to a temporary school dinner provider whilst we look to appoint a company to provide us with our school dinners. Ravensdale Junior School will be kindly providing us with this service from September. Unfortunately, sandwich bags will not be on offer from them and they are unable to offer a halal option. They are providing us with a great menu full of different daily choices (click here) and this is only a temporary measure—we aim to have full provision of dinners back up and running as soon as we can.

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.
